Former Liverpool winger Thomas Ince was the talk of the Football Transfer Tavern during the January transfer window but despite interest from Anfield and Reading the 21-year-old remained at Blackpool for the rest of the season.
However it now looks like the England Under-21 international will be finally on the move with Cardiff City set to sign Ince.
Today’s Express suggests that the newly-promoted Welsh side have agreed a deal with Blackpool which will see Ince making the switch to South Wales this summer.
The paper reports that the two clubs have agreed an undisclosed fee for the winger who netted 18 goals for the Bloomfield Road outfit last term.
Ince, whose dad Paul is the manager of the Seasiders, could now link up with Cardiff boss Malky Mackay at the club who are being heavily backed by Malaysian owners on their entry into the top flight.
Ince left Liverpool in 2010 to find regular football with the Tangerines but it was rumoured that he could make an Anfield return although this looks highly unlikely after manager Brendan Rodgers instead looked to Spain for his transfers this summer, having already snapped up Sevilla’s Luis Alberto and Celta Vigo’s Iago Aspas.
Will Ince flourish in the top flight with the Bluebirds? Should Liverpool have brought him back to Anfield? Let us know your thoughts below.
