Liverpool refuse to go higher for Blackpool winger Thomas Ince.

The Telegraph says negotiations for Blackpool midfielder Ince have temporarily stalled after fraught discussions with the Championship club.

Liverpool's valuation of around £4 million - for a player who left Anfield last season for £500,000 and is available for free this summer - was considered 'too low'.

There is no prospect of Liverpool bidding any higher since Ince will be out of contract in the summer.
