Notts County boss Paul Ince says Liverpool do not need Southampton whiz Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Liverpool are chasing the 17 year-old, but former Reds captain Ince says his son Thomas Ince is just as good.

He said: "My lad is on a par with this boy, without a doubt, but they are kids at the end of the day, so let them play and enjoy ­themselves.

"He just needs to settle down, play his football and listen to the right people like his manager and his ­father Mark, who was a pro footballer."
