Bournemouth hot-shot Danny Ings has admitted he would be interested in playing at a higher level.

A number of clubs higher up the football pyramid have been credited with an interest in the talented forward.

Fulham and Crystal Palace have both seen bids rejected for Ings, while a host of Premier League and Championship sides are thought to be weighing up moves for the 19-year-old.

Ings, who scored eight goals in 25 appearances last season to help Bournemouth reach the play-offs, admits he was disappointed to hear the bids from both clubs had been rebuffed by the Cherries, who are holding out for £1m-plus for the teenager.

Disappointed

"Obviously I was disappointed the offers were turned down," Ings told skysports.com. "It would have been a good opportunity for me."

While Ings is happy playing for Lee Bradbury's Bournemouth, he admits the opportunity to play for a club at a higher level may be too good to turn down.

"At the moment all I can do is focus on playing for Bournemouth," added Ings. "I am very grateful for Bournemouth giving me my chance.

"However, like any player I have the ambition to play at the highest level I can and for footballing reasons if the opportunity comes up over the coming weeks then I would hope we will be able sit down and look at it."
