Deal or no deal? Differing reports on Ince to Liverpool

Tom Ince’s father, Paul, has commented on reports linking him with a return to Liverpool saying he believes his son is ready to play regularly in the Premier League.


Paul, the former Liverpool and Man United midfielder, told Sky Sports News “I just feel he is ready for the Premiership – whether that means he is going to go in January, or at the end of the season, or at the end of next season, who knows.”

Today’s Telegraph claim Liverpool are “ready to walk away from a deal” for Ince and that talks have reached deadlock.

While The Daily Mail claim a deal is close after a “breakthrough in negotiations”.

Blackpool boss Michael Appleton has previously explained that Liverpool had placed a bid for Ince. The Mail claim that offer was of £4.75m, The Telegraph say it amounted to £6m.

The deal is complicated by a sell-on clause that Liverpool have for Ince after he joined the Seasiders for £250,000 in 2011 after his contract at Anfield expired.

    I’d rather get him in the summer when we won’t be held to ransom. We still have suso and assaiadi. And downing……when he decides to play

      We have a one year option kicks in in the summer so we would still be demanding high value and then you could be fighting for him over Manure and others. If you can get him now at this ridiculous low price it will be a bargain. He is never worth half of a SAHA. They are equally gifted so should be worth 11-12 million

    Abort this one Ian Ayre. Who do Blackpool think they are? They’re just playing hardball because we took Charlie Adam. Add £5m to the Ince money & get Coutinho.

    • Adrian Jowitt

      Who do we think we are??? He’s an England (youth) Player FFS. And probably the best midfielder in the Championship. get them scouse blinkers off ;-)

    This is another waste, guy is not proven I dont care what under 21 team he may play for. LFC is NOT a training ground for second rate players who just happen to be English and request top price. Pass

    remember charlie adam? Complete waste of money!

    If he’s worried about starting games could change his name to Lucas that seems to get you a game however bad you are

    Blackpool are always taking the piss out of us now days. Lets just get the lad for free in 6 months rather than be held to ransom by Blackpool again. Honestly he should never have been allowed to leave in the first place.
