Tom Ince back in training at Blackpool as star keeps Cardiff City waiting

Tom Ince was back in training at Blackpool today as Cardiff City continue to wait for the  21-year-old to make up his  mind about a move to the Welsh capital.

Ince met with Bluebirds boss  Malky mackay this week about  a potential switch after Cardiff  had an £8m bid for the player  accepted by the seasiders 11  days ago.

Reports in the north west suggest England under-21 international Ince was impressed by  what he saw at Cardiff, but  wants more time to consider  his future.

His father and manager  Blackpool, former Manchester  United and England midfielder, Paul Ince, who escorted his  son to meet with Mackay maintains the decision rests  squarely with Ince junior.

There have been suggestions  that other Premier league clubs,  including Liverpool, where young Ince began his career, and Everton, might come in for  the pacey winger, but so far that  has not materialised.

Ince senior meanwhile has not  ruled out the possibility that his  son might remain in the Championship with Blackpool for  the coming season.

He said “If Thomas  decides to stay, then that’s  great. It will mean I have two of  the best wingers in the division  in him and Matty Phillips.”

It remains unclear how long  Mackay is prepared to wait for  Ince to make up his mind before moving onto other targets.

It is understood that Cardiff  were originally expecting a  quick decision by Ince over whether he would be putting  pen to per or not on a deal.

As he prepares for the Bluebirds’ first top-flight campaign  in more than half a century  Mackay has so far only made  one new signing.

That was the arrival of Danish marksman,Andreas Cornelius from FC Copenhagen for a club record £8.5m transfer  fee.

Mackay has also tied down  defenders Mark Hudson and  Kevin McNaughton to new contracts during the close-season.

After their Championship winning campaign last term, Mackay and his men face their first  game in the Premier League  away at West Ham on the  weekend of Saturday, August  17.

The current transfer window  will close on Monday, September 2.
