Blackpool boss Paul Ince has confirmed that his son and star player Tom Ince will not be leaving the club this month, as reported by the Blackpool Gazette.
Swansea confirmed that they made a bid for Ince junior earlier in the January transfer window but the manager has now reiterated that he will not be losing his best player after all.
It does appear though that the England under-21 international is now set to leave Bloomfield Road for free in the summer when his contract expires.
That will of course mean that the Seasiders will not receive a transfer fee for their main move who has turned down a move to the Premier League on two occasions in recent months.
Paul Ince would not comment on the recent rumours that his son will join French club Monaco for free this summer but did confirm he won’t be leaving this month.
“Thomas loves playing for this club and loves the fans. It’s only natural he will move on eventually, but that will not be in this window.
“He wants to help the players and fans stay in this league.”
