SkySports is reporting that that Swansea and Crystal Palace have made approaches for Championship Blackpool winger Thomas Ince. Swansea and Palace have joined the race for England Under-21 international, just hours after the transfer window opened.

Both clubs are believed to have contacted the Seasiders about a possible deal, but it remains to be seen if his father Paul, the Tangerines boss, is willing to let him leave in January.
