Blackpool and Hull City have agreed a deal for the transfer of Tom Ince.
Liverpool are set to receive an unexpected transfer boost of £560,000 after Blackpool and Hull City came to an agreement with regards the transfer of winger Tom Ince, who came through the youth academy at Anfield before leaving to make his name with the Seasiders in the Championship, according to reports from the Mirror.
Ince joined Hull from Bloomfield Road in the summer after his contract at Blackpool expired, but he has not enjoyed a particularly successful stint at the KC Stadium so far, with the youngster having endured a frustrating loan spell back in the Championship with out-of-form Nottingham Forest.
The two clubs have been wrangling over the fee that Hull were to pay for Ince, which was due was he is under 24, but have now come to an agreement without tribunal of a fee of £2.3m, with £1.6m being paid upfront.
This means that Liverpool are due a £560,000 windfall from the deal on account of sell-on clauses put in the deal taking Ince to Blackpool in the first place, after he made just one first team appearance for the Reds – in a League Cup defeat to Northampton Town.
