The England Under-21 international has attracted interest from a host of Premier League clubs and Tottenham, Cardiff and Liverpool were also linked with Ince last year.

Swansea and Palace have joined the race for the 21-year-old's signature, just hours after the transfer window opened.

Both clubs are believed to have contacted Blackpool about a possible deal, but it remains to be seen if his father Paul, the Tangerines boss, is willing to let him leave in January.

Ince is thought to have rejected a move to Cardiff in August because he wanted to remain in the north-west with his family.

But he is targeting a place in England's senior side and knows that a move to the top-flight would improve his chances of impressing manager Roy Hodgson.

Speaking in the summer, Ince said: "I have been playing for England under-21s, and if I am under consideration for the senior squad, might not a Premier League platform help make it happen? Especially in a World Cup season."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
