Paul Ince: In discussions with Blackpool over manager's job

Blackpool are still searching for a new manager to replace Michael Appleton following his departure to Blackburn last month.

Steve Thompson is currently in caretaker charge at Bloomfield Road, but the club are thought to be keen to bring in a new manager as soon as possible.

Blackpool have been linked with several names since the departure of Appleton, but have so far been unable to bring in a replacement

Ince is now thought to be in pole position for the role after opening talks with the club's hierarchy.

The former England international is keen to get back into management and the fact that he is unattached appeals to Blackpool.

If Ince takes over at Blackpool it will see him link up with his son Tom at Bloomfield Road.
