We love our young homegrown talent here in England. When Blackpool’s Tom Ince secured a loan move to Crystal Palace in January, everyone was excited to see what the future England star could bring to the Premier League.
It’s fair to say it didn’t fully work out, as Ince was confined largely to substitute cameo roles as Tony Pulis’ side cruised to Premier League survival.
However, reports have emerged that the ex-Liverpool youngster is set to make a move to former Champions League winners, Inter Milian, and he has flown out with his father, Paul Ince, in order to negotiate a move to the club.
Unsurprisingly, a few questions have been asked on Twitter over the compatibility of Ince and Inter, especially after an underwhelming first experience of Premier League football.
Tom Ince to Inter. Taarabt to Milan. The fact those players are in the same sentence as those clubs shows how far the clubs have fallen.

Tom Ince is the classic example of an English footballer who’s bigged up and thinks he’s so much better than he is. Nothing special. — Ben Smart. (@bensmart0) May 26, 2014
how are teams like inter milan interested in tom ince … he he so overrated its hilarious !
Tom Ince is in Milan to finalise his deal with inter, claim the daily mirror. Surprising really as he struggled to make it into Palace’s XI.
