Liverpool face a battle to re-sign Blackpool winger Thomas Ince.

The Daily Star says Tottenham and Newcastle United are trying to hijack Liverpool's move to re-sign Ince.

The Merseysiders are confident of wrapping up a £4m deal to bring Blackpool star Ince back to Anfield in January.

But Spurs and Newcastle have also tabled offers as the race hots up to sign the exciting left-footed winger.

The Seasiders are understood to have received offers from SEVEN different clubs for the 20-year-old.
