Seasiders would rather sell their prize asset to an English club than see him move abroad.
Tottenham Hotspur are still keen on signing highly rated Blackpool midfield player Tom Ince when the January transfer window opens again for business at the turn of the year, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
The exciting England Under-21 international has been attracting the attentions of a whole host of Premier League clubs of late after starring for the seasiders in the Championship for the past two years now, with Ince generally thought to be the most accomplished performer in that division at present.
In fact, Newcastle United were seriously considering making a move for the 21-year-old back during the summer, only to hold off, although now it is thought highly likely that the north London club will make their own move for Ince in the new year after what has been another outstanding start to the campaign by the Englishman.
In total so far this season, Ince has managed to register an excellent six goals and five assists in his 15 Championship contests for his club, although with strong interest in the coveted wide man from overseas giants such as Eredivisie champions Ajax and Serie A outfit AC Milan, Spurs know that they will face stiff competition for the player’s signature in January.
