Thomas Ince will continue his tour of Premier League clubs today by heading east to talk to Hull City and Sunderland.
The Blackpool winger missed last night’s hammering at Reading, having spent another day talking to top-flight clubs with his dad, Paul.
Unsettled Ince was given permission by the Seasiders to discuss a loan move with Swansea on Monday and he also met with Crystal Palace that evening.
Yesterday the Inces were photographed at Stoke City’s training ground, where they met with manager Mark Hughes to talk over a possible deal covering the rest of the season.
The 21-year-old will speak to Steve Bruce at Hull today before finally nipping to Sunderland. Ince has until 11pm on Friday to sign for a new club, though it has been reported he could confirm his decision tomorrow.
Pool had to do without Ince again last night, but stand-in boss Barry Ferguson knew little about the winger’s future.
He said: “I don’t have anything to do with it, I don’t know what’s going on.
“The last time I spoke to Thomas was at ten to three on Saturday when he wished me all the best.”
