Tom Ince: Remaining focused on Blackpool

The 20-year-old England Under-21 international continues to be linked with a Premier League switch as the January transfer window grows nearer.

But Tom, son of former England regular Paul, believes he owes a great deal to the club where he is quickly making a name for himself.

Ince junior made the switch to Bloomfield Road from Liverpool in January last year after a brief loan spell with Notts County.

"I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for Blackpool," he told Sky Sports. "I've been given the opportunity to play week in, week out at a very high level in the Championship.

"It is flattering to have all that interest. It's great - it shows you are playing good football and are in good form. But at the moment my focus is on playing for Blackpool."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
