Ince gives Cardiff hope over son deal
Latest news update:
Blackpool boss Paul Ince may have encouraged Cardiff to renew their interest in his son Tom after saying wherever he goes he must play.
Ince junior was close to making the move to south Wales earlier in the summer after Cardiff had a bid accepted for the England under-21 star.
However, the former Liverpool youngster turned down the approach and said at the time he felt staying at the Championship club was the best thing for his future development - for now at least.
However, his father's latest comments could be interpreted as a suggestion a future switch to Cardiff could still be on the cards, after the former Manchester United midfielder said that wherever his son goes he must not be left to rot on the bench.
"What I wouldn't want Thomas to do is to go to a club and then spend a lot of time on the bench, as that would hamper his development," the Blackpool boss told Sky Sports News.
"Whenever he does go, and whatever club he goes to, he needs to be playing football and his development needs to be taken forward.
"Look at Scott Sinclair when he left Swansea and went to Manchester City, he hasn't played for two years. That won't happen to Thomas."
Ince junior has also been linked with a return to Anfield this summer but the Reds are believed to have baulked at the fee that was being asked for the 21-year-old by the Seasiders amid reports it was as high as £8million.
