On loan Crystal Palace winger Tom Ince has revealed that he only spoke to three clubs about a six month loan deal during the transfer window, as reported by Sky Sports.

The England under-21 international was in high demand after Championship strugglers Blackpool revealed that their main man would be leaving on loan during the January transfer window, just days after his dad Paul Ince was sacked as the clubs manager.

Palace appear to have snapped up one of the best prospects in English football and with his contract at Blackpool being up in the summer, the Eagles could be in line to sign the winger permanently should they stay up.

Ince cannot play against Arsenal today as he wasn’t signed in time on deadline day but the 22 year old is clearly pleased to have decided Palace was the right option.

“I went to Swansea and spoke to them, then I spoke to Steve Parish and then on the way back up north I spoke to Mark Hughes and Stoke,” Ince added.

“The whole saga wasn’t entirely true, I spoke to three clubs who I felt I would fit in well at and Crystal Palace were the one for me.

“Crystal Palace is a great club and has a great fanbase. The way they play and the players they brought in suits me.”
