Newcastle United are lining up a January bid for Blackpool winger Thomas Ince.

Newcastle United are lining up a January bid for Blackpool winger Thomas Ince.

The Mirror says the 21-year-old Blackpool midfield player is out of contract next summer and his club will pick up a token fee if he moves.

But if he is sold in January, Blackpool will collect around £4.5million – and it could be an offer they find difficult to refuse.

Blackpool – managed by Thomas’s father Paul – are keen to open new contract talks.

But the England Under-21 international has so far resisted attempts to commit himself to a new deal. And Newcastle ­Director of ­Football Joe Kinnear is fully aware of Ince’s ability.
