Manchester United are intensifying their pursuit of Blackpool winger Thomas Ince.Sky Sports says United have been keeping tabs on the progress of Ince, who is the son of former Red Devils midfielder Paul Ince.

Sir Alex Ferguson ran the rule over Ince during Saturday's clash against Charlton at Bloomfield Road as he weighs up a move in January for the fleet-footed attacker.

However, Ferguson would have been disappointed to see Ince start the game on the bench before coming on in the second half for Ian Holloway's men.
