There’s a report today in Daily Star that Newcastle are interested in bring Tom Ince to Tyneside.
Tom Ince with that Wonga sign on Blackpool shirt
The 21 year-old son of former Manchester United and England great Paul Ince, has been linked with Newcastle before, and it seems that Blackpool want £6M for the youngster, which doesn’t seem too bad a fee for such a promising English younger, who has 6 caps for the England U21 side.
It’s thought that Thomas would be on his way back to Liverpool this summer, whom he left in August two years ago, when he joined Blackpool.
Since then he has played 88 times for Blackpool with 26 goals, and he is a very skillful winger, and last season he scored 18 goals in 47 appearances for the Tangerines.
Blackpool didn’t have too good a season last term and finished 15th in the Championship, and sources said to be close to Bloomfield Road say that Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is keen on the youngster and Newcastle could move in quickly with a £5M bid.
Inter Milan were the other club linked with a possible move for Ince, but we have to hope this story is true, because getting Tom Ince for £5M would be a very good deal for Newcastle, and they could then offset the fee by selling Gabby Obertan and/or Dan Gosling in the summer.
Sounds good to us – what do you think?
