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.
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.
