LFCTHE Blackpool Gazette, have reported that Liverpool have until this afternoon to match a bid made by Welsh outfit Cardiff City, for Blackpool winger Tom Ince.

According to a clause in the deal that saw Ince make the move to the Seasiders, if Blackpool were to accept a bid for the player, as they have done, then Liverpool have a 48 hour window where they will have the opportunity to match it. Cardiff’s deal is proposed to be in the region of £8 million and add-ons.

Even if the Reds opt against intervening in Cardiff’s approach, Blackpool manager, the player’s father, Paul Ince, has insisted that the move would not be set in stone.

Ince said: “I think it’s 50/50 at the moment if he’ll stay or not. It’s a tough one for me. I want my son playing in the Premier League but I also want him here playing for me.”

Tom Ince racked up an impressive 18 goals for Blackpool in the Championship last season, and there has been ongoing speculation about his future for quite some time, with a return to Liverpool always at the forefront for the player who left Anfield two years ago.

Ince made just one appearance for the Liverpool first team in his time at Anfield, a substitute appearances against Northampton Town in the Carling Cup in September 2010.

Hey all, I'm 17 years old and I've only been writing sports articles for a couple of months. I'm an aspiring journalist living in the Anfield area (about 5 minutes from the stadium, seriously, I can hear the roar of the Kop from my house!) I've been a lifelong supporter along with my entire family (except one Uncle, but we don't need to talk about that) and I've followed the Reds through the good and the bad times - and there's been a lot of both. I recently got accepted into college and shall be taking a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Journalism, with this hopefully being the first step towards a full time career in journalism.

  • Soccer-spirited King says:

    That is an old tale. Let him go. We need Alonso/Donesk player and Papa the defender. Thank God that Luise told mw he would stay, that he wants to scare England FA for losing a player of his Calibre. We are there…..

  • adeyemi says:

    I dont think we need him

  • best advise says:

    take the 2.7 million pounds we will get for him and use it to buy a new centre back

  • jack says:

    and that rubbish Assaidi . Sign him up

  • muhammed said says:

    Lets sharpen our scouting skills. This tom dick harry lacks the potential explore huge spain talents.

  • Raam says:

    Its not Assaidi’s fault jack. He simply didn’t suit with BR way of play. With the arrival of new signing it will be harder for him.And even if Ince Jnr comes, will he be guarenteed playing time?

    • Tommy says:

      Assaidi is sh*t. He wouldn’t get in any premier league team.too lightweight and no end product.

      If he didn’t fit in with Rodgers way of playin , then why did buffoon Rodgers buy him ?

  • Neil Fox says:

    8 million ? Why oh why Did we let him go ? He is better than what we have so I say get him
