Blackpool’s Tom Ince says he is pleased to have Premier League clubs chasing him – but the former Liverpool trainee insists he is focused on his current club.

The 20-year-old, son of former England captain Paul Ince, has risen to prominence since leaving Anfield to join the Seasiders in 2011.

He is expected to win his fifth cap for England’s Under-21s this evening against Northern Ireland and he insists his head has not been turned by speculation linking him with the likes of Manchester United, Spurs and Newcastle.

“I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for Blackpool,” Ince said.

“I’ve been given the opportunity to play week in, week out at a very high level in the Championship.

“It is flattering to have all that interest. It’s great - it shows you are playing good football and are in good form.

“But at the moment my focus is on playing for Blackpool.”
