Ince attracted interest from a host of Premier League clubs and has held talks with Palace, Swansea, Stoke, Hull and Sunderland as he weighed up his future.

But Palace appear to have won the race for the sought-after youngster and are set to unveil their first signing of the January transfer window.

The England Under-21 international is due to hold further negotiations about the move and is thought to be travelling to a London hospital for a medical.

Swansea are believed to have ended their interest in Ince, leaving Palace in pole position to wrap up a deal for the 22-year-old, who is out of contract at Blackpool in the summer.

Crystal Palace first-team coach Gerry Francis said: "Very pleased obviously. We've got to dot the Is and cross the Ts a little bit at the moment, but obviously very pleased that Tom's able to come into the club.

"He's an exciting player, scores goals, which is really important and very pleased to see him on board."

Ince could be handed his debut in Sunday's Premier League clash against Arsenal at the Emirates, live on Sky Sports.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
