Blackpool instruct Liverpool to improve Ince offer

Blackpool manager Michael Appleton has told Liverpool they will need to up the ante if they seriously want to bring Thomas Ince back to the club.

The highly-rated 20-year old winger has emerged as a key target for the Reds after his brilliant start to the Championship season but Appleton suggests what they have offered so far is well under the Seasiders' asking price.

"As far as I'm aware I think there's been a conversation between (chairman) Karl (Oyston) and Liverpool regarding an offer but, as far as I'm aware, it's way below the type of money we'd expect for someone of Tom's talent," he told BBC Radio Lancashire of the former Liverpool youth.

"Obviously the chairman keeps me informed but I think it was just an initial conversation between himself and Liverpool and there was a figure used but obviously it's way below, like I say."
