Blackpool winger Ince open to staying with Palace

Blackpool winger Thomas Ince is open to extending his stay at Crystal Palace.

Blackpool winger Thomas Ince is open to extending his stay at Crystal Palace.

The Tangerines winger joined the Eagles on loan at the end of the transfer window and has almost certainly played his last game for his parent club.

"Steve Parish was great and worked ever so hard to get the deal over the line," Ince told the Croydon Advertiser.

"The Blackpool chairman is not the easiest guy to work with and Steve worked his magic. I am thankful for that.

"As a young player, you always want to play at the top level but my dad and I sat down, and it’s all about timing and planning.

"It got to the stage where I thought now is the right time to go and play in the Premier League.

"If, in the summer, I stay on, then I’ve had that three months or so learning what the Premier League is like. It’s all a bit new to me but at the same time I’m really excited to get going.

"If Palace like what they see from me then we’ll sit down in the summer and see what’s available."
