RALPH Hasenhuttl's confident Saints will keep hold of Danny Ings this summer.

The St Mary's ace has bagged 18 top-flight goals this season and is just three behind Golden Boot leader Jamie Vardy.

And Hasenhuttl reckons there's no need for Ings to up sticks should a top side come in for him when the transfer window opens.

He said: “One of the positives in this is Danny is one of our own and he’s a guy who really enjoys being with us and playing on this area.

“The top six have fantastic strikers in their squad and he has a history with injuries, for sure.

“But he is at an age where it is more comfortable for him to be at a club where he knows what he has.

“He’s absolutely conformed to what we are doing and how we play. The intensity of how we play is absolutely fantastic for him.

“But, yes you never know when someone comes and pays us £100million for him. I don’t know what we do then and what he does then.

“But I don’t see this at the moment. I think for him it’s more important he sees what he has here.

“He has two more years left on his contract. And I really can see that he stays even longer after that.”
