DANNY INGS looked unrecognizable during West Ham’s friendly win over Tottenham as he waited for a hair transplant to begin.
The dark-haired Hammers ace was a regular in England’s top flight but has now decided to give things a boost by paying around £17,000 for a transplant.
Ings, 30, was photographed with his head shaved and sides bandaged after his procedure at the Mayfair Hair Clinic.
He also shakes “Dr. D” with a big smile on his face as he is happy with the process.
The clinic charges between £12,000 and £17,000 for transplants and can also offer extras that can cost up to a further £1,000.
After the transplant, Ings told the clinic: “The Mayfair Hair Clinic was recommended to me by a colleague and they exceeded my expectations – a level above the rest!”
And that showed on the pitch when he scored West Ham’s opening goal against Spurs.
The Hammers managed to end the game in a 3-2 win when Gianluca Scamacca scored the winner in the closing stages.
The former Southampton striker is not the first Premier League star to undergo the procedure.
Arsenal defender Rob Holding, Andros Townsend, former Manchester United star Wayne Rooney and former Tottenham manager Antonio Conte have all had transplants.

Holding now has an incredible head of hair, which he has to hold back with an Alice band.
Ings will be hoping his good form continues after scoring in two of West Ham’s three pre-season games.
Since joining the London Stadium, Ings has netted just three competitive goals in 22 appearances in all competitions.
Although he did get his hands on a European medal when the Hammers won the Conference League against Fiorentina.
