Ings said that working so hard towards an ultimately successful goal taught him a lot as a player, and he fully intends to have more joy during his time at the club.
"It was an unbelievable journey, from the start of the season until the last game," Ings told the club's official website. "I worked as hard as I could do and started the season really strongly, it just built up and up as the team did well that helped me to do well.
"Being a young lad like myself, it's rare that you get seasons and opportunities like that to be part of a good team, but getting promoted is something that not many players get to enjoy during in their career so to do it at 21 is crazy.
"It's something I want to build on, get stronger and better and hopefully get a few more under my belt in my career."
Burnley finished second in the Championship last season behind Leicester City.
