Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston has admitted that he is expecting winger Tom Ince to join Serie A side Inter Milan in the upcoming days according to Sky Sports.
The 22-year old is out of contract next month and has been linked with some of Europe’s top clubs including Liverpool, Monaco and Inter Milan.
The midfielder has been heavily linked with Inter Milan over the past week and has been spotted at the San Siro in this past week amid rumours the deal to bring him to the Italian giants was done.
This will prove to be a huge blow for Blackpool who were hoping Ince would join an English club in order to get maximum compensation. However, a move to Italy will earn Blackpool little money.
Oyston told Sky Sports, “It’s largely been outside of our control and has been for quite some time. Tom will decide, along with Paul (his father) where he will go and where his future lies.
“I’d say it won’t be here, he’ll either go abroad – which has already been all over the press – or he’ll remain domestically.”
He was later asked about the financial consequences of the move to Italy, “You don’t lose what you have never had. We paid a modest fee for him. He’s been out on loan at Crystal Palace – so we got a fee for that.
“There’s no guarantee with footballers that you ever get a fee for them. So there’s no way I can influence that, they will make a decision on what is best for Tom’s career.”
