Hull City have completed the signing of former Blackpool star Tom Ince on a two-year deal.
The English starlet was close to signing with Serie A side Inter Milan only for negotiations to fall through, opening the door for a Hull swoop.
The 22-year-old arrives at the KC Stadium as a free agent, but a compensation fee is still to be agreed upon by Blackpool and the Tigers.
“At my age and at this time in my career I wanted to show what I could do in the Premier League,” Ince told Sky Sports.
“I have unfinished business at this level. I spent a great six months this year at Palace and like I say, this could hopefully be my first full season in the Premier League.
“I’m no different to any other player, I’m going in to Hull City to work hard and try and grab one of those shirts.”
Ince will be City’s third major signing after securing the move for Tottenham’s Jake Livermore and Robert Snodgrass from Norwich City.
A statement on Hull City read: “We are delighted to confirm Tom Ince as our third major signing of the summer.”
