Blackpool winger Thomas Ince insists he is fully focused on his football at Bloomfield Road, amid mounting transfer speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United.

Sky Sports reports how the 20-year-old continues to be watched by a number of Premier League suitors, ahead of a prospective move in the forthcoming January transfer window.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been credited with an interest in Ince's signature, as he considers a bid to bring the son of Old Trafford favourite, Paul, to the club in the New Year.

Ince Jnr. admits he's aware of the recent rumours, with talk following him around for some time. But, he says he has a great deal of gratitude to Blackpool for giving him his first real break in the game, and remains committed to the Tangerines cause.

"I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for Blackpool," he said, after joining the Seasiders from Liverpool in 2011. "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's great - it shows you are playing good football and are in good form. But at the moment my focus is on playing for Blackpool."

The England U21 international has enhanced his burgeoning reputation with a string of impressive performances, scoring nine goals in 15 Championship appearances this season.
