Ince not pushing for move

28 January 2013

Tom Ince insists he is happy to remain a Blackpool player beyond Thursday's transfer deadline.

The England Under-21 winger has been linked with former club Liverpool throughout January, with Swansea and Reading also reportedly holding an interest.

But Ince is in no rush to realise his Barclays Premier League dream.

"Every player wants to play (at the) top level at some stage of their career," said Ince, quoted in the Daily Mirror.

"But, as far as I am concerned, if I am still a Blackpool player come Thursday then great. My attitude will never change and I won't go off the rails thinking 'Why didn't I get this move or that move?'

"I will always work hard for this team and I am happy scoring goals for Blackpool. The club has given me the stage to express myself and the players allow me to do it."

Ince was in scintillating form at the weekend, scoring both goals as the managerless Seasiders came from behind to beat Wolves 2-1 and he believes caretaker boss Steve Thompson should be given the opportunity to succeed Michael Appleton on a permanent basis.

"I'd like to see Thommo given the job, definitely," he told the Blackpool Gazette. "He's been here throughout the thick and thin. He's always stuck by the lads. All he does in training is help us. He's there for every player, 100 per cent.

"Whatever Thommo does, it's for the best for this club. He has every right to have a go at this job. Why not? The players showed the right attitude to win for him on Saturday. Thommo has our full backing.

"All we can do is keep putting in performances like we did at Wolves and it will do him no harm."
