Thomas Ince has joined Crystal Palace on loan, with Pool favourite Stephen Dobbie coming the other way.

Ince has been in London all day with Palace chairman Steve Parish in talks over a loan deal for the rest of the season.

Pool gave the 22-year-old permission to talk to a number of clubs this week and Palace have won the race.

Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston turned down Palace’s initial offer, but finally accepted a bid involving cash plus Dobbie on Friday night.

Dobbie goes straight into Blackpool’s squad to face Blackburn tomorrow.
