LIVERPOOL are reportedly set to loan out Danny Ings – which means Daniel Sturridge will have to stay put next month.

The Daily Mail claims Jurgen Klopp has decided to let Ings, 25, leave Anfield until the end of the season in order to build up his match fitness.

Ings has suffered a number of serious knee injuries during his time at Liverpool and is attracting interest from Newcastle, Stoke and West Ham.

But his gain is Sturridge’s loss, with Klopp unwilling to lose both of his back-up strikers in the same window.

Sturridge, 28, is desperate to leave the Reds after spending most of his season warming the bench.
