Hostilities in the tug-of-war in Wales over the race for Blackpool’s Tom Ince look to have ceased.
Cardiff and Swansea were in the chase to sign the highly-prized England under-21 international.
But on the day that Ince reported back for training at Blackpool with his future still the subject of frenzied debate, Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins appeared to distance himself from a move for the player, labelling Blackpool’s £8 million valuation as ‘staggering.’
The Seasiders have already revealed that they have accepted an offer of that sum by newly-promoted Cardiff.
Jenkins told radio station talkSPORT: “The prices that have been quoted for Tom Ince are staggering.
“Our manager (Michael Laudrup) has been keen on him for a while, ever since he played for Blackpool against us.
“There’s no doubt he’s going to get a move this summer but I’m not sure where he’ll end up going.”
