The 22-year-old moved to Selhurst Park in January for the remainder of the season after his displays in the Championship resulted in reported interest from a host of top-flight clubs.

Ince scored on his Premier League debut against West Brom but struggled to nail down a place in Tony Pulis' side, partly due to the impressive form of fellow wingers Jason Puncheon and Yannick Bolasie, as he made just five starts during his time with Palace.

The former Liverpool youngster is set to return to Bloomfield Road at the end of May, but his current deal at Blackpool expires in the summer and he says that moving to Palace could be a possibility for him despite not being a regular.

"I have had a bit of a long season being up and down," he told the Croydon Advertiser.

"I just want to do what every footballer does and put their feet up and go on holiday. I'll come back in June, see what my options are there for me. I have just got to pick the right one for me.

"I have enjoyed my time at Crystal Palace. The players, the staff and the fans have been phenomenal for me.

"It's hard for a loan player to come in. You're not really a Palace player but if we manage to sit down in the summer, I'll have a chat with the chairman here.

"I am definitely not ruling Palace out. I know the feel and the team.

"It's not easy when you come into a team on loan, and if the players weren't great and you weren't playing, you can easily lose your head but these lads have been fantastic.

"The whole squad has been positive and you can see that in the games. When you've got a squad like that, where you feel welcome and you feel at home, there's always a positive vibe."

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
