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."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
