Liverpool are keen to buy back Thomas Ince from Blackpool. The Mirror says Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is ready to bring Thomas Ince back to the Kop - just over a year after the 20-year-old was given away.

Rodgers is keen to do a deal for the young England star - son of former Anfield midfielder Paul - and is lining up a £5million offer.

Ince left Liverpool on a free transfer because he was fed up at his lack of opportunities under Rodgers' predecessors.

The attacker is now being chased by several Premier League sides, including Liverpool's arch-rivals Manchester United.
