Paul Ince: Hoping to see key men pen new deals before dipping into the transfer

With the Seasiders having moved on to 55 points for the season, they would appear to have laid any lingering relegation fears to rest.

That means Ince can now turn his attention to the summer, with targets in the process of being drawn up and new deals set to be offered to those who will be out of contract.

Ince told the Blackpool Gazette: "I've had a couple of discussions. Not so much with the players - as if you talk to two or three players then the others will wonder why I've not spoken to them.

"But I've sat down with the chairman and spoken about what I'd like to do and when we intend to call the players in.

"Three of four weeks ago we couldn't have dreamt of talking about these things, but now we can, a little.

"It's going to be a rebuild, but it's not a major one. When I look at the core of the team, I'm very happy.

"It won't be a major operation on the team, but we want to move forward.

"There's at least four or five players I want to bring in. But I'm more than happy with what I've got here."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
