Paul Ince will today speak to Manchester United about the possibility of extending Tyler Blackett’s loan deal.
The 19-year-old’s one-month move expired on Wednesday but due to the loan being a current one would be allowed to extend.
Pool are desperate for numbers after Tuesday’s sendings off and Ince is keen to retain the United man despite the return of Jack Robinson.
Blackett impressed during his three games for the club, particularly against Birmingham and Sheffield Wednesday.
Ince will hold talks with David Moyes in the next 24 hours, hopeful an extension until January can be arranged.
