Huddersfield winger Ince: I was blocked making Liverpool return

Huddersfield Town winger Thomas Ince has revealed how should've joined Liverpool four years.

Ince says Blackpool stopped him from rejoining Liverpool in 2013.

He told the Telegraph: "Liverpool was very close but the Blackpool chairman did not want to be out of pocket because Liverpool owned a percentage of the sell-on fee.

"He made it difficult and they would not let me go. That was disappointing because I felt I would have been given a chance under Brendan Rodgers."

Ince also explained why he opted to reject a move to Inter Milan three years later.

The 25-year-old added: "When Inter were interested in me I stood in the San Siro and the English boy inside me told me to go to the Premier League."
