Blackpool’s Tom Ince says he is flattered by the interest shown him in by some top Premier League clubs, and the two clubs out in front of the pack for the Blackpool winger and the son of the former Manchester United and England player Paul Ince – are Newcastle United and Manchester United.
Tom Ince – flattered by the interest in him
Tom’s career has taken off since he left Liverpool last year for Blackpool, and he is in really top form this season, scoring 10 goals in just 16 appearances for Blackpool, and since he joined them last season, he has made 57 total appearances and scored 18 goals for the Seasiders.
Tom is in the England U21 squad for the game against Northern Ireland tonight (Sammy Ameobi had to withdraw because of a slight hamstring strain), and he could get his 5th cap at the U21 level, and he talked about his situation today:
“I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for Blackpool,” “I’ve been given the opportunity to play week in, week out at a very high level in the Championship.”
“It is flattering to have all that interest – it’s great – it shows you are playing good football and are in good form.” “But at the moment my focus is on playing for Blackpool.”
Tom has also been capped at the England U17 and U19 levels, and if he keeps on improving as has been at Blackpool, he could soon receive a full England call from England manager Roy Hodgson.
While it wouldn’t surprise us if Newcastle are interested in Tom Ince, the fee being reported is around £8M, and that’s too much for Newcastle to pay, and also with Manchester United in the mix, we think we’ll have little chance of signing this talented young winger, if indeed the Red Devils are interested.
