BLACKPOOL are closing in on the signing of Liverpool teenager Tom Ince.

The attacking midfielder was at Boundary Park with dad Paul on Saturday to watch the Seasiders play Oldham.

The Gazette understands Ince held positive talks with Pool boss Ian Holloway on Friday and the England Under-19 international is could sign ahead of tomorrow’s home friendly against Hibernian.

Ince, who has impressed in Liverpool’s reserve and youth teams since 2008, is set to follow Gerardo Bruna in moving from Anfield to Bloomfield Road.

His one first-team appearance for the Reds was as a substitute in last season’s Carling Cup defeat to Northampton.

He spent a successful loan spell at Notts County, where his father was in charge, scoring two goals in six appearances.

Saturday will have revived unhappy memories for former England star Paul, who lost his job at Meadow Lane following a defeat by Oldham in April.
