Blackpool winger Tom Ince may turn down an option of staying with the Seasiders until the end of the season to leave this month, according to the Daily Mail.
Ince has had a turbulent two weeks after turning down the chance to join Swansea and Cardiff and holding talks with French giants Monaco, before his dad Paul was sacked as Blackpool boss earlier this week.
The England under-21 international was left out of the squad by caretaker boss Barry Ferguson yesterday in his first game in charge which only enhanced rumours that a January deal was on the cards.
Blackpool would rather sell their main man now for a sizeable fee than lose him to Monaco in the summer for free, something that former boss and father Paul advised.
Swansea and Cardiff have already been knocked back and now West Brom, West Ham, Sunderland and Hull are set to make their moves to persuade the 21 year old to come to the Premier League.
Promotion is looking unlikely for Blackpool this season and so Ince is refusing to sign a new contract but his next move could be the most important of his career.
