Bournemouth's Eddie Mitchell wants £1m for Danny Ings
Ings is a product of the Bournemouth youth system
Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell has said it will take an offer of at least £1m for the club to consider selling striker Danny Ings.
Newspaper reports on Saturday suggested that Ings was due to undergo a medical at Burnley ahead of re-joining his former Cherries manager Eddie Howe.
Mitchell told BBC Radio Solent: "I would rather not comment on Danny's situation at the moment.
"But he wouldn't leave this club for under £1m that is for sure."
Mitchell added: "If we can bring £1m into the club, it would be great for us. The club needs to bring its youth in-house but we have no training facilities and no permanent base and it's the same for our first team squad."
I came here to be long term, we don't plan to go downhill and we won't go downhill. We will play in the Championship within a short period of time

But Mitchell defended the Cherries' position in having to cash in on some of their brightest talents, with Anton Robinson, Rhoys Wiggins, Jason Pearce, Brett Pitman, Josh McQuoid and Marvin Bartley among those to have left the club over the past 12 months.
"We're a club that has to look at the future and look at the bigger picture and work hard to be amongst the bigger clubs that are two leagues above us," he said.
"Whether we sell or buy players is the responsibility of the board and we've got to plan our destination between us.
"It's always sad to lose someone from the club especially when you've got a team that's achieved what we've achieved over the last two years, but we have to move forward, we have to plan long term, we have to get our house in order and we need to look at the bigger picture. The bigger picture is to move from this division into the Championship.
"I came here to be long term, we don't plan to go downhill and we won't go downhill. We will play in the Championship within a short period of time."
