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."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
