Liverpool Close to Securing Their First January Signing

Liverpool are close to securing their first transfer of the January window in the form of Blackpool’s Tom Ince.

The England Under 21 international is on the verge of a £4m move to Anfield accoring to the Liverpool Echo.

The winger has grabbed 13 goals in 19 appearances for the Tangerines this season and has been linked all-year round with a move to the Premier League.

Ince left Liverpool just over a year ago for £250,000 but is now set for a return where he will grace the same pitch as his father, Paul Ince, used to so famously.

Upon selling Ince for the quarter of a million pound fee, Dalglish, manager at the time, inserted a 35% sell on clause which should significantly reduce Blackpool’s £6m valuation to around the £4m mark.

Ian Holloway recently left Blackpool to join Crystal Palace but admitted before leaving that there was a lot of interest, but his father wanted him to remain in the Championship.

“There was interest in Tom last week,” Holloway said in August.

“No one has heard about it but I’ll share it with you. His dad wants him to stay with us.”

Ince moved to Bloomfield Road following only one senior appearance for the Reds against Northampton Town in the League Cup.
