Liverpool and Manchester United midfield starlet target quells transfer talks

Published Add your comment

Tom Ince has played down talk linking him with a move to the Premier League, saying his focus is entirely on helping Blackpool reach the Premier League.

The 20-year-old has impressed this season for the Tangerines and so far has 9 goals to his name in 15 appearances, including goals in each of his last three outings.

The former Liverpool youngster has been linked with a move back to Merseyside, while representatives from Manchester United have reportedly cast an eye over him.

Ince is the son of former Old Trafford favourite Paul Ince, who is believed to have held talks with Red Devils manager Sir Alex Ferguson over a potential switch. Some reports suggest Ince is seen as a long-term replacement for Nani, whose future at Manchester United hangs in the balance.

Yesterday it was claimed that Ince was being lined up as a £5 million replacement for Luis Suarez, who was linked with a move away from Anfield yesterday – a claim which Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers quickly refuted.

Despite the interest from Liverpool and Manchester United, Ince is keeping his feet firmly on the ground, and says he will not have his head turned by rumours of a big-money move.

“I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for Blackpool,” he told the Blackpool Gazette. “I’ve been given the opportunity to play week in, week out at a very high level in the Championship.

“It is flattering to have all that interest. It shows you are playing good football and are in good form, but at the moment my focus is on playing for Blackpool.”
