Spurs and Newcastle to hijack Reds' Ince bid
19th December 2012 8:20am GMT
Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United are trying to hijack Liverpool’s bid for Blackpool winger Tom Ince.
The Reds are confident of wrapping up a £6 million deal to bring the star back to Anfield – less than two years after he left the club.
But is has now been reported that Spurs and the Magpies have also tabled bids – and the Seasiders are understood to have received offers from seven different clubs for the 20-year-old.
Liverpool are still the front-runners to land their man, having already agreed a fee and £25,000-a-week terms with Ince – son of former England star Paul.
And the Anfield club were hoping to confirm the deal in early January, but sources close to the negotiations have indicated a return to Merseyside is not yet complete.
