Blackpool boss Paul Ince claims it will take a "ridiculous" offer to prise his son Thomas away from Bloomfield Road.

The highly rated England Under-21 international winger has attracted a raft of reported interest from top-flight clubs on the back of his impressive performances for the Seasiders over the past two seasons.

But Ince Snr is relaxed about the situation, with the player still contracted to Blackpool for another 12 months.

"We knew there would be a lot of interest in Thomas and that's proving to be the case," he told the Blackpool Gazette.

"But speaking to him, he will be happy to come and play here again. I'm not saying he doesn't want to go and play in the Premier League because I know one day he will.

"If we can keep him for the next 12 months, then it will save us from looking elsewhere.

"We'd like to keep him but if someone makes a ridiculous offer we'll have to look at it. Fingers crossed he'll be here again next year."
