Former Blackpool star Tom Ince has rejected the chance to play for Inter Milan, reports Sky Sports.

The 22-year-old flew out to the San Siro with his father Paul, as the Italian club looked to sign the free agent.

But Ince has returned to England, with his eyes on a move to the Premier League. Both Liverpool and Crystal Palace, where he finished last season at on loan, have been linked with the winger:

“After lengthy discussions with my family I have decided that my immediate future in the game lies in the Premier League,” he said.

“I am flattered to have received such strong interest from several big European clubs. But I believe at this early stage of my career I need to continue my football education in England. I would like to thank the clubs overseas for their interest and kindness. I still have ambitions to one day play in Europe. I am now looking forward to what lies ahead next season.”

The England Under-21 midfielder has also been linked with a move to Ligue 1 side Monaco, but it seems the youngster has set his heart on a stay in England, with the ambition to play in the top flight once more.

    Ince didn’t go because they wouldn’t guarantee him game time. As a free transfer they would have just sold him back to an English club next year and made a healthy profit. Lets be honest, if Palace didn’t play him much then Inter would have him sweeping the corridors, not the wings of the San Siro.
