Tom Ince: Does not want to go into the Premier League and struggle

Tom Ince: Does not want to go into the Premier League and struggle

Blackpool boss Paul Ince does not want to lose one of his key players but he is also keen to see his son make the most of his career and the Championship club are prepared to let him go for the right price.

Tom Ince accepts that moving up to the top flight would be a big step and he wants to make sure he is ready to make an impression.

"I have had long chats with dad, as manager and player and father and son," the 21-year-old told The Independent.

"He told me he has had his time as a footballer and he can look after himself at Blackpool. He wants me to play at the level he believes I can play at.

"I have proved I can handle myself in the Championship but I don't want to go into the Premier League and struggle.

"I know there will be days when I am criticised and days when I am out of form. It's a rocky road ahead and I want to cope like Ryan Giggs coped."

Blackpool had agreed a deal to let the player join Cardiff earlier in July, but he declined the chance to join the newly promoted club and will wait for what he considers to be the right opportunity.

He explained: "For whatever reason when I went to Cardiff, I had a gut feeling that it wasn't right. My family is in the north and I'd just become a dad."
