Blackpool's Thomas Ince has cooled talk of a move to Liverpool after reports resurfaced over his future.

Ince, 21, who was subject of a Reds bid in January, is in demand again with fresh speculation that Brendan Rodgers will make another approach in the summer.

The winger has been in impressive form this season, picking up the Football League Young Player of the Year award last weekend, but wants to make sure the time is right before he moves elsewhere.

"It's great having that speculation and it's very flattering," he told The Sun.

"Every player wants to play at the top level but that comes with time and patience. I've just turned 21. I need to make mistakes and learn from them.

"I need to make sure that if I go to the Premier League, I am ready to go."
