The 22-year-old will officially join the Reds from Burnley next month after representing England at the UEFA U21 European Championship in the Czech Republic.

Ings played the second-half of England’s 1-0 win over Sweden in Group B on Sunday with Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard grabbing the winner.

Speaking to Sky Sports about his forthcoming move to Anfield, Ings said, “Words can’t describe the move I’ve got for myself. I’ve worked my way from the bottom so it’s even more special for me.

“It’s a challenge that I’m looking forward to. I’d never get complacent with anything like that.

“Now I’ve got that move I’ll work even harder to try and get into that team and be the best professional I can be.”

Ings could next be in action when England U21s take on Italy U21s in their final group game on Wednesday.

Elsewhere in the tournament on Sunday, Liverpool’s Tiago Ilori helped Portugal U21s to a goalless draw against Italy U21s.

In the Copa America, Philippe Coutinho started Brazil’s 2-1 victory over Venezuela on Sunday night to help his country book place in the quarter-finals. Brazil will face Paraguay on Saturday night.
