Tom Ince admits he is no rush to join a Premier League club as he continues his development in the Championship.
The 21-year old winger has become one of the best players in England's second tier with Blackpool but has opted against a dream move to the top flight because he feels like overseas players will receive more attention than he in terms of improving his game.
"If you look at a lot of clubs in the Premier League, particularly the top five, there are a lot of foreign players. It makes it very hard for young English players to break through.
"A lot of people make rash decisions, based on getting into the Premier League too quick. You have to earn the right to be somewhere.
"Wherever you go, you are not guaranteed to play football. There are a lot of English players out there now at big clubs who aren't playing football.
"I am happy to be playing in the Championship - people underestimate how good this league is. I will know when the time is right to go into the Premier League. When I do, I don't want to be loaned out or be in and out of the team. I have to make sure that I am ready."
