Blackpool have accepted a bid from Cardiff for Thomas Ince, according to manager Paul Ince.
The 21-year-old is one of the most sought-after players in the Championship after making his name as a goalscoring midfielder at Bloomfield Road.
Cardiff are looking to strengthen their squad after promotion to the Premier League, but Paul Ince reckons it is only “50-50” his son will move on.
“Cardiff have come in massively for Thomas, the chairman’s accepted the offer,” he said. “I’m not sure what the offer is because I’ve been away, but that’s been accepted, so it’s a case of when he comes back next week, Thomas, we’ll sit down and see what he wants to do.
“He loves it here. He said to me, ‘I’m in no rush to get to the Premier League, I’m in no rush to leave Blackpool’.
“I think it’s 50-50 at the moment. It’s a tricky one for me because obviously you want your son to be playing in the Premiership, but you obviously want your son to be playing with you.
“I feel as far as improvement there’s still a long way for Thomas to go and will he get that if he went to the Premiership? I’m not too sure. I know what he needs because he’s grown up with me.”
