Liverpool to get £2.8m from sale of Tom Ince


Liverpool are set to receive £2.8m from the sale of Tom Ince from Blackpool to Cardiff City.

tominceInce, 21, is reported to be on the verge of a £8m move to the newly promoted Welsh side – and Liverpool have a 35% sell on clause on their former academy player.

Ince, son of Blackpool boss and former Liverpool midfielder Paul, was strongly linked with a return to Merseyside in January but the Reds instead signed Philippe Coutinho from Inter Milan. They have shown no interest in re-signing the Englishman this summer.

Ince left Liverpool two years ago failing to agree a new contract after finding first-team opportunities limited under Roy Hodgson. He sought first-team football and Liverpool allowed him to leave for just £250,000 but a hefty sell-on-clause was written into the deal with Blackpool. Former director of football Damien Comolli previously explained the reasons surrounding Ince’s departure here.

Liverpool will welcome the cash windfall and continue their spending this week, with a medical for goalkeeper Simon Mignolet expected tomorrow, and talks over defender Tiago Ilori continuing.

    We didn’t really let him go. We’ve offered him a new contract three times, but he decided to go.

    Whoever is thinking we should let people like assaidi or shelve go don’t forget they haven’t actually had a chance in the team only a few apps and shelve got 5 Europa lg goals and won us a game against west ham last season

      Shelvey surely has delivered a few decent performances, but if he wants to succeed he will have to be way more consistent and much less sloppy in his passing. Giving ferguson a rollicking, though, was his best moment last season.

        That was hilarious! :)
        It was never a sending off either.

        Send him out on loan for a season.

          Only if a team in the Prem would take him and actually play him regularly. Otherwise we might be better off selling him.

  • anteater

    Shelvey has managed 6 goals in 10 matches for Blackpool and we know how well he did for us last season.

    What is VFM?

    Wouldnt suprise me if Blackpool tried to keep the money owed to us. That Karl Oyston fella is a bell end!

    Henderson? I doubt it.
    Send Shelvey out on loan and see what he can do with regular first team football.
    Spearing can go.

    £2.8m + the original £25k… That should pay for most of Ilori :)
