Liverpool to finalise Ince deal

It has become somewhat of a standard thing here at the Football Transfer Tavern to watch Liverpool try to pay over the odds for English wingers and the Daily Mail report that a bid for Blackpool’s Tom Ince is soon to be finalised.

Of course this is the player who the club let gobefore realising he was actually a few shades better than Stewart Downing who cost them an awful lot more than the £6 million Blackpool are demanding for Ince.

The England Under-21 winger has been linked with a move back to Liverpool for a few weeks now but the move has gone off the radar recently. The sticking point had been the initial £4.75 million offer from Liverpool with Blackpool feeling the player is more in the £7 million bracket.

As our landlord remarks, if Liverpool had correctly assessed the player during his spell at Anfield they would have recognised his talent and could have saved themselves a hefty fee! Swansea City are also sniffing around the player, yet both the price and Ince’s desire to join Liverpool would prove sticking points.

After lighting up Blackpool’s play-off run last season Ince showed his quality and placed himself firmly on  the radar for a move. After yet another decent spell for the Tangerines this term, the club are willing to let him leave for the right price and the youngster is hoping that his former club can cough up.

Do you think Ince will end up at Liverpool…again? Vote in our polls below.

    Apparently, Liverpool are due 35% sell on fee for Ince, so they wouldnt be paying the full amount. I doubt Ince would have developed quite as well in the reserves so its a bit silly to suggest they ‘missed a trick’ or whatever.

    “If Liverpool had correctly assessed..”

    Please do research. Liverpool offered once several contracts which he turned down. He wanted to play. At least try to get an article right for just once….please!?!?

    So what if they offered him contracts, but didn’t really offer him any prospect of first team football? Why would a talented ambitious player sign when far less talented players were getting to play and he wasn’t? If the club had assessed the situation, they would have been playing him instead of Downing or Henderson and saved themselves a lot of money and from looking like a bunch of bufoons yet again. Our transfer market activity is becoming the laughing stock of English football.
