West Ham have reportedly completed the £15million signing of Aston Villa striker Danny Ings.
Sportsmail reported West Ham’s interest earlier this month, along with Everton who initially wanted the 30-year-old on loan.
Sportsmail also previously reported that Villa was reluctant to loan the former England international but was willing to listen to permanent offers, particularly after he signed Jhon Duran from Chicago Fire this week.

And, Sky Sports has now reported that the Hammers have completed the signing of Ings for a fee of £15m.
West Ham are keen to refresh their strike force but are struggling to find the right player within their budget.
David Moyes is a longtime admirer of Ings and has previously attempted to sign the ex-Liverpool striker.
Ings has scored 14 goals in 52 games for Villa since joining the club from Southampton for £25million in the summer of 2021.

He has also played in the Premier League for Burnley, Liverpool and the Saints, having come through the youth ranks at Bournemouth when they were in the Football League.
West Ham also have concerns over the form of Michail Antonio, who are willing to sell that window amid interest from rival Premier League clubs.
The Hammers have also negotiated with Lorient over Terem Moffi after being rebuffed early in the window by Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri.

However, Ings would bring Premier League know-how and guaranteed goals and the pace of work to suit Moyes’ ethos.
The manager faces a crucial game against his former club Everton this weekend amid questions about his own future and that of his counterpart Frank Lampard.
Both teams desperately need a win to get out of the relegation swamp.
