Romeu explained that: “We saw this morning he wasn’t there and we thought, I don’t know, he had something and apparently he has moved to Villa.”
The absence of Ings had the players bemused until the news broke that their striker had left following the final whistle on Wednesday night, and with no warning the Southampton players now must adapt to life without their star man.
However, it doesn’t appear that Ings’ former teammates hold anything against the Englishman following his move, as Romeu said: “There’s really nothing we can say, he’s been great for us, we want to wish him all the best.
“He’s probably also going to do a great job over there. He’s a great lad, a good guy to have around and an amazing player.”
Ings scored 46 goals during 100 appearances for Southampton across all competitions, and the striker narrowly missed out on the golden boot two seasons ago as his 22-goal haul during the 2019/20 season was just beaten by Jamie Vardy (23).
