English winger Thomas Ince has rejected a move to Italian giants Inter Milan, claims The Guardian. The 22-year-old apparently would prefer to play in the Premier League rather than follow in his father’s footsteps. Inter's interest in the youngster was starkly evident but it has been for nought it seems.
Paul Ince, moved to inter in 1995 and had a successful spell scoring six goals in 24 matches, but Tom does not fancy a move to the San Siro. He was quoted as saying: “After lengthy discussions with my family I have decided that my immediate future in the game lies in the Premier League.
“I am flattered to have received such strong interest from several big European clubs. But I believe at this early stage of my career I need to continue my football education in England.
“I would like to thank the clubs overseas for their interest and kindness. I still have ambitions to one day play in Europe. I am now looking forward to what lies ahead next season.”
The under-21 England winger played for Crystal Palace on loan from Blackpool in the Premier League during the recently concluded club season. Despite a relatively meagre campaign, he has been dubbed as one of England’s most promising players and has lots of suitors in the form of big clubs. Tottenham and Everton are believed to be the forerunners in the race for his signature with the likes of Stoke City also believed to be involved.
