Rodgers admits Ince deal is off

Liverpool, Updated:

Brendan Rodgers has admitted that a deal to sign Blackpool winger Tom Ince is unlikely to go through before the window shuts.

"Ince was one where we could have made a deal but it looks like it's a bit complicated," he said. "I don't think there will be any more coming in now." "It will be difficult [to sign Ince]. It is also about affordability as well.
"If Tom stays at Blackpool it doesn't mean he will never come to Liverpool but in this window it looks like it will be a difficult one."

The Reds have been chasing their former player for most of the month but Rodgers has admitted that a deal is now unlikely to go through because of the price and complications.
Rodgers has not ruled out making a move for Ince some time in the future but for now the deal is off.
