Blackpool's Ince reveals Tottenham, Everton, Cardiff interest

Blackpool winger Tom Ince has confirmed that three Premier League clubs were showing significant interest in him during the summer transfer window.

The 21-year old has attracted a lot of attention over the past six months and was reportedly heavily tracked by Tottenham, Everton and Cardiff City but decided to remain at Bloomfield Road.

"I didn't feel that, right now, I wanted to move to Tottenham or Everton. It is flattering to have that interest in me but it is about playing for Blackpool and enjoying my football," he told Sportsmail.

"I went down to Cardiff to speak to Malky Mackay and what a guy he is.

"They are a very strong team, they got a fantastic result against Manchester City and it wasn't to do with any fears that Cardiff might struggle.

"I'm based up in the North-West, I've just had a little girl myself so I felt the timing wasn't right to move my family down there and make that sacrifice."
