The clubs have agreed a fee for the 21 year old England U21 international who scored 18 goals in the Championship last season, and all that appears to be left before the completion of the transfer is for personal terms to be agreed.
Ince would be Cardiff City’s first signing since being promoted to the Barclays Premier League and it will be seen as a signal of intent for a team that will not want to go the way of many newly promoted teams and end up getting relegated after just one season in the top flight of English football.
At present the size of the fee is undisclosed but with Liverpool FC having a 35% sell-on clause in Ince’s Blackpool deal then hopefully a fee of around £8-£10 million pounds could net the Reds upwards of £3 million.
Ince, son of former Liverpool FC player Paul Ince was reportedly a transfer target for Liverpool in January when the club also signed Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho. There was also talk of a bid from Tottenham Hotspur this summer, as well as the Reds renewing interest.
However with the club moving to sign Iago Aspas and Luis Alberto recently, it appears likely that Ince will not be returning to the club that released him back in 2011.
