Tottenham Hotspur are ready to proceed with an £8 million move for coveted Blackpool midfield player Tom Ince this summer, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The north London club have actually been keeping close tabs on the highly rated England Under-21 international for some time now, however, chairman Daniel Levy had been holding off making a move for the 21-year-old in the hope that the Championship outfit would lower their valuation of their star man.

However, with Tottenham head coach Andre Villas-Boas having now managed to offload midfield duo Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore both to Hull City on Wednesday, the Portuguese has freed up room in his squad for the arrival of Ince.

The wide man has been with the seasiders since August 2011 when he arrived on a two-year deal from Premier League giants Liverpool, and in the intervening two-year period Ince has gone on to establish himself as being one of the stand-out performers in the Championship.

In 89 matches for Blackpool in that time, the winger has managed to score an eye-catching 27 goals in total in all competitions for the club, including 25 strikes in the league, and it is expected that Ince will go straight into the Spurs starting XI after arriving at White Hart Lane.
