Tottenham & Newcastle United Battle it Out for Championship Starlet

White Hart Lane and St James’ Park sides battle for Blackpool starlet.

Check-In to Chelsea v Liverpool

Tottenham and Newcastle are the latest clubs to be linked with a move for Blackpool’s Tom Ince.

The 20-year-old midfielder has attracted attention from a number of Premier League sides after a string of impressive displays.

And with Ince’s contract set to expire next summer, Andre Villas-Boas and Alan Pardew want the England Under 21 star to bolster their respective squads.

Tottenham and Newcastle United are just two of many Premier League suitors said to be keen on the young Blackpool attacker, who can play in an attacking midfield role or more commonly as a winger, and given that eccentric boss Ian Holloway has now left Bloomfield Road there is perhaps a growing sense that the English youngster could be lured away from the Seasiders.

Son of former England midfielder Paul Ince, Tom spent three years at Liverpool before opting to move to Bloomfield Road after failing to break into the club’s first team set-up. The 20 year old hasn’t looked back and his form has led to a call-up to the England Under 21 side as well as a great deal of speculation about a return to the Premier League.

Ince has netted eight goals in 13 Championship matches this season and provided six assists and this despite the fact that the Tangerines are sitting in mid-table.

The youngster will no doubt think long and hard about a move to a Premier League side knowing that his last experience didn’t pan out as he would have wished.

A move to Tottenham may just edge a possible Newcastle United switch though both sides would surely tempt the Stockport born attacker.
