The agreement between the clubs came late on deadline day, with Ings granted permission to miss training to be ready to travel for a medical when needed.

The fee is variable though, and the Saints could be required to pay a further £2m in appearance-related add-ons, while Liverpool also have a 20% sell-on clause.
