News this morning that Hull winger Tom Ince is meeting club officials to discuss a potential move this summer.

Ince looks certain to move with Hull’s relegation and only one year left on his contract.

Sky Sports also report that Newcastle United and Derby County are the two clubs interested in taking on the son of former England player Paul Ince.

Along with numerous others, Tom Ince has been linked with Newcastle for some time, with it even being seen as a done deal that he was moving to Tyneside as he ran down his contract at Blackpool, only to move to Hull last summer.

The winger only made 3 Premier League starts for the Humberside club last season but after a brief loan spell at Nottingham Forest, he found real form under Steve McClaren at Derby scoring 11 goals in 18 Championship appearances.

Tom Ince made his name when scoring 32 Championship goals from only 89 appearances in the starting eleven for Blackpool, though he has managed to generate just as many headlines via his contract situation and number (5 in the last 18 months) of clubs he’s played for.

In May he made the news once again, this time when he refused to play for his country in the Under 21s European Championships.

    I’m really not sure if we should buy him

  • DZA187

    Would make a good squad player but we need 6 quality first team players.

  • Geordie Zebra

    Better than Sammy or Obertan. Not necessarily one of the 5/6 first teamers we need but progress. Sign him.

    It looks like we’ve identified the horse to bolt to the cart, or should that be donkey.

    BRILLIANT NEWS – The disappointment I’ve felt since we made riiviere our last signing continues. i’d prefer Cardiffs owner over Mike Ashley, it is that bad.

    If it between us and Derby it’s a no brainer. We can’t compete with the likes of Derby, be realistic the Bournemouth’s of this world will outspend us and show more ambition.

    Championship player

    He’s not really the answer , but he’s definitely at the level  Fatty’s looking at .
