Crystal Palace have offered £4 million for Blackpool winger Thomas Ince.

The Sun says Palace boss Ian Holloway was Blackpool manager when the winger joined the Seasiders from Liverpool's academy in August 2011.

But the Eagles face a battle for the England Under-21 star as fellow Premier League new-boys Cardiff, along with Swansea, have matched their offer. Tottenham and Ince's dad Paul's old club Liverpool are also interested.

Ince jnr is currently at Euro 2013 in Israel with the Young Lions.
