According to The Mirror, Liverpool will allow striker Danny Ings to leave the club on loan in January, if he still hasn't forced his way into Jurgen Klopp's first team plans.

Both Newcastle united and Leeds are two parties reportedly interested in the ex-Burnley striker.

The 25-year-old emerged as one of the brightest young strikers in England while at Turf Moor with Burnley, after he scored 37 goals in his final two seasons with the Clarets.

The Englishman allowed his contract to run out in 2015 and made the move to Liverpool, however since his move to Anfield Ings has suffered regularly with injury.

In October 2015, Ings suffered anterior cruciate knee ligament injury, before suffering a similar injury in his right knee just over a year later, meaning his first team opportunities at Liverpool have been massively limited.

It means that although Ings is now close to a return, that his record for Liverpool stands at just three goals in 12 games, while he has only played 17 minutes of first-team action this season.

Even with Ings returning, Liverpool still have options such as Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and Dominic Solanke at their disposal up front, all of whom Ings is probably behind in the pecking order.

As a result Jurgen Klopp may be willing to allow Ings to leave on loan when the transfer window re-opens in January.

Newcastle have held a long-term interest in Ings, but the likes of Leeds, Crystal Palace, Southampton and Watford are also thought to be interested in taking the English striker on loan until the end of the season.
