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."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
