Palace shocked by Blackpool price for Ince, Phillips

Crystal Palace have been stunned by Blackpool's asking price for Thomas Ince and Matty Phillips.

The Mirror says Palace boss Ian Holloway is reeling after former club Blackpool quoted him a combined £14million fee for wingers Ince and Phillips.

Both valuations are so high because Blackpool agreed - ironically, during Holloway’s time in charge - to sell-on deals that will pass slices of any transfer fees to the players' former clubs, Liverpool and Wycombe.

The Anfield giants will pick up around £2.4m from any Ince sale, while League Two side Wycombe would receive a windfall close to £2m.
