Tom Ince: Could be set to join newly-promoted Cardiff

Tom Ince: Could be set to join newly-promoted Cardiff

The 21-year-old - son of Blackpool boss Paul - has flourished at Bloomfield Road since moving from Liverpool in the summer of 2011.

His performances have attracted the interest of a number of Premier League clubs, with a dramatic return to Anfield believed to have been close last January.

That move never materialised but Blackpool's failure to secure a return to the top flight last season meant it was always going to be a struggle to keep the England Under-21 international should Premier League clubs come calling.

Cardiff, who ran away with the Championship title last term, have yet to dip into the transfer market this summer as they plan for their first-ever Premier League campaign.

But an agreement is now believed to be in place to bring Ince to south Wales.

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?
