Southampton made a dramatic late attempt to sign Liverpool striker Danny Ings.
Ings made a decision earlier this summer to seek a move away from Anfield in order to win the first regular football team.
The striker, wounded by injuries, could not enter the starting lineup of Jürgen Klopp since joining the club from Burnley in 2015.

It had been the subject of interest of several clubs, such as West Ham, Crystal Palace, Leicester and Newcastle, but Southampton has reached an agreement with Liverpool that would take them to Ings loan initially with the obligation to buy.
Even though the window closed at 5 p.m., the Saints have until 7 p.m. M. Thursday night to ensure that the agreement is finalized after the terms agreed with the south coast side.
Ings has only made six Premier League starts for Liverpool since signing at Burnley in 2015 as a result of two devastating knee injuries.
