Blackpool offer Tom Ince new contract

Chairman Karl Oyston is keen to tie the winger down to new terms as his current deal is set to expire at the end of the season, with Tottenham and Swansea City interested
Blackpool have offered winger Tom Ince a new contract, chairman Karl Oyston has confirmed.

The 21-year-old will be able to sign a pre-contract agreement with a club in January - with Blackpool eligible for compensation - and Goal understands Tottenham remain keen after missing out during the summer.

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has also expressed an interest, and Oyston expects Ince to remain in the country, rather than move abroad, if he opts to leave during January.

"We get compensation if he goes abroad, but I think it's more likely a domestic club will make an offer in January," Oyston told BBC Radio Lancashire.

Ince turned down an £8 million move to Cardiff City during the summer, while he was also the subject of bids from former club Liverpool 11 months ago and Oyston is unsure if the player will pen new terms.

Oyston added: "Again, it's down to Tom and his father [Blackpool manager Paul Ince] whether we choose to sell or keep him until the end of his contract,

"We have offered him a new contract. It's very fluid, there's nothing definite and I certainly shall not start speculating. Who knows what will happen, but it's an interesting situation."
