Blackpool transfer news: Club accepts transfer bid from Cardiff for Tom Ince, says father (and manager) Paul
Monday 01 July 2013
Blackpool have accepted an offer from Cardiff City for English star Tom Ince according to Tangerines manager, Paul Ince.
The Blackpool manager is also, coincidentally the starlet's father.
The 21-year-old has generated interest from a number of clubs following his impressive 2012/13 season in the Championship, where he notched 18 goals from the midfield for the Seasiders.
But it appears Malkey Mackay’s Cardiff have taken pole position in signing the England Under-21 international, after reportedly having their bid accepted by Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston.
Speaking of the news, Paul said: “Cardiff have come in massively for Thomas and the chairman has accepted their offer.
"It’s a case of when he comes back, we’ll sit down and see what we want to do.”
However, former Manchester United and Liverpool player, Paul, also revealed his son is happy with his current club.
“He loves it here and has told me he’s in no rush to leave the club,” he said.
