Blackpool winger Ince explains turning down Cardiff

Blackpool winger Thomas Ince has explained turning down Cardiff City.

The England U21 star wrote in the Daily Mail: "I certainly didn't see it as a gamble when I returned home from South Wales the other Monday night and phoned my dad (Blackpool manager Paul Ince) to say I was staying. It just felt the right thing to do, after weighing up all the pros and cons.

"The decision was nothing against Cardiff or their manager Malky Mackay, who is a top, top bloke. He phoned my dad to begin with and showed a lot of interest in taking me to Cardiff. I respect the way he went about it, and that's why I went down there, to have a look at the club and speak to Malky face to face."
