Blackpool and England U21 star Tom Ince is set to hold contract discussions with manager and father Paul Ince when he returns from international duty with the England U21s.

Ince has been linked with moves to Manchester United and former club Liverpool this summer but Ince has stated that he is currently focused on the European U21 Championship in Israel. 

In an interview with the Daily Mirror, Ince stated he will return from Israel with an open-mind, and also that manager and Dad, Paul Ince, is ready to aid the 21-year-old with whatever decision he wants to make.

"Once I get these Euros out of the way, I'll sit down and talk with him about my future," he told the Daily Mirror. "He's always said to me 'It's what you want to do'. He's my Dad and my manager and he'll advise me but, ultimately it'll be about what I want.

Ince was also quick to point out that being the manager's son comes with advantages and negatives.

He added: "On the training pitch, he's the manager, but that's as far as it goes. When we're back home it's father and son. When I play there's no favouritism. In fact, my Dad is more critical of me than anyone else. I wouldn't want it any different."

As well as Manchester United, former club Liverpool have also been linked with a move for their ex-player, but Ince has said he has no inclination to return to the club he left in order to play regular football.

"You don't feel anything. I made a decision and said "It's time for me to go and play some football," said Ince on the possibility of a return to Liverpool.
