Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is eager to keep hold of Swansea City target Thomas Ince.

Ince struck twice in their 6-0 thumping of Ipswich Town yesterday.

"He took his goals terrifically well and he’s come on leaps and bounds for us over the past year," said Holloway. "The transfer deadline doesn’t bother me because he’s got his dad Paul Ince, who understands what is best for him.

"He knows that Tom needs games to develop, and he’s at a very good place at Blackpool to do that. I had a conversation with his dad, and he wants his boy to stay here.

"When we brought him in I was asked to nurture him and to look after him and that’s something I’m grateful for."
