Transfer latest: Tom Ince reported to have turned down move to Cardiff
The Blackpool midfielder is believed to have rejected a transfer to Premier League new boys choosing to remain with Blackpool for the time being
Friday 12 July 2013
Tom Ince is reported to have turned down the chance to join Cardiff City from Blackpool.
Sky Sports believes that Ince had asked to have until Friday to consider Cardiff's offer following the agreement of an £8m fee earlier this week.
But the England U21 star has opted to refuse the chance to move to the Welsh capital for the time being at least.
Ince currently plays under his father Paul, who is manager at Bloomfield Road.
Speaking on Thursday, Cardiff boss Malky Mackay had remained hopeful of landing the 21-year-old.
"I can only say from the chat we had, we had a very amicable, friendly chat and they asked me a lot of questions about where his career could go forward, where I see him in terms of the type of player he is and what's going on here," he said.
"He was certainly very impressed by the stadium, training ground and the city in general during our conversation and the plans for Cardiff City going forward."
Ince has been linked with a move to fellow Welsh side Swansea, though a return to former club Liverpool may not be out of the question as Brendan Rodgers continues his relentless recruitment drive.
