Both men have been the subject of interest from Premier League clubs over the past year, with the future of England Under-21 international Ince attracting much speculation.

Now, at the very least, Blackpool will be able to secure satisfactory fees for their services after the duo joined first-teamers Chris Basham, Craig Cathcart, Matt Gilks, Bob Harris, Angel Martinez, Isaiah Osbourne and Nathan Eccleston in extending their stays along with youngsters Louis Almond, Anderson Banvo and Jake Caprice.

Talks remain on going with seven key members of Paul Ince's first-team squad, namely skipper Alex Baptiste, fellow defenders Kirk Broadfoot, Stephen Crainey and Neal Eardley, midfielders Barry Ferguson and Ludovic Sylvestre and forward Gary Taylor-Fletcher.

Long-serving defender Ian Evatt has not been offered a new deal but could earn one if he takes up the offer of resuming pre-season training with the Seasiders following an injury-ravaged campaign.

Craig Sutherland is in the same boat as Evatt, while Ashley Eastham, Tiago Gomes, Elliot Grandin and Kevin Phillips must seek pastures new after the club decided against putting new deals on the table.

Veteran striker Phillips joined Crystal Palace on loan in January and went on to help the Eagles to an npower Championship play-off place.

New contract offers have been offered to young professionals Tom Barkhuizen, Adam Dodd, Mark Halstead, Chris Kettings and Liam Tomsett, but fringe players Paul Bignot, Alex Addai, Gerardo Bruna, Matthew Challoner, Adda Djeziri and Curtis Thompson miss out.

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
