Blackpool will finally attend a transfer tribunal to set a fee for Thomas Ince on Thursday.
The winger, who spent three seasons at Bloomfield Road, joined Premier League Hull in July, after his Pool contract expired.
Ince only turns 23 at the end of the month and Pool are entitled to compensation, though the clubs have not agreed a fee.
He has made only eight appearances for Steve Bruce’s side, scoring his only goal in the Capital One Cup defeat by West Brom, and spent a rather unsuccessful two-month loan at Nottingham Forest.
However, he has found favour back on Humberside since his return at Christmas.
It’s believed Pool chairman Karl Oyston, along with legal representitives, will voice Pool’s case at the hearing and are thought be asking for around £4m.
Ince was a big hit after joining Pool from Liverpool for £250,000 in 2011, though he became unsettled afterthe sacking of his father, Paul, as manager last January and spent the rest of the season on loan at Crystal Palace.
