Ince holding Cardiff talks

Malky Mackay is in discussions with Tom Ince over a reported £8m move to Cardiff City.

Ince and his father Paul were spotted arriving in Cardiff yesterday and it's widely reported this morning that talks will resume today on personal terms after the clubs have already agreed a fee of approx £8m.

“We’ve had a bid accepted and Tom has been on holiday,” Mackay said last week.

“He’s back and we are going to be talking to him over the next couple of days.

“We are very keen to push things forward, he’s a young and exciting player. He needs to play football and that is something that both his dad and I realise.”

Meanwhile Ince's father and boss at Blackpool, former England international Paul, said

“It’s not my decision, it’s Thomas’. I can only advise Thomas in what I think is right.

“He’s 22 this year and sensible enough to know what he wants to do.

“It would be great for me to have him at Blackpool for another year but, yes, it would be great to see him play in the Premier League. I am just going to leave myself out of it and let him decide.”

Ince senior added: “Thomas knows he will play in the Premier League one day but there’s no rush.

“He has said he’s happy at Blackpool and really enjoys his football.

“He enjoys the people he plays with here and the way the fans allow him to express himself.

“Thomas only came back from holiday last week, so he’s not had much time to think about the offer from Cardiff.

“If this move appeals to him, then we will talk about it and speak to everyone, but he’s comfortable at Blackpool.”
