Blackpool winger Tom Ince has rejected a move to Inter Milan and confirmed he intends to play in England next season.
The 22-year-old England Under-21 winger looked set to follow in father Paul's footsteps and play at the San Siro next term, having met club officials last month to discuss a possible switch.
But Ince has confirmed he will not be playing abroad in 2014/15.
"I am flattered to have received such strong interest from several big European clubs," he was quoted as saying on the Daily Mail's website. "But I believe at this early stage of my career I need to continue my football education in England.
"I would like to thank the clubs overseas for their interest and kindness. I still have ambitions to one day play in Europe.
"I am now looking forward to what lies ahead next season."
Despite being out of contract at Bloomfield Road, Ince is under 23 so Blackpool will be due compensation when he makes his next move.
