News of Thomas Ince’s availability has sparked interest from half the Premier League.

Pool announced late on Sunday that the winger had been allowed to discuss a loan move with a top-flight club and the 21-year-old held talks with Swansea yesterday.

But Pool were inundated with calls from other clubs, with Cardiff, Crystal Palace, Everton, Stoke, Sunderland and even Ince’s former employers Liverpool all enquiring.

It leaves Ince with a big decision to make, one which he is expected to make in the next 48-hours.

He didn’t travel with Blackpool’s squad for tonight’s game at Reading and he isn’t expected to play for the club again.

His contract at Bloomfield Road expires this summer and he told stand-in boss Barry Ferguson last weekend he was “not in the right frame of mind” to play.

Pool are keenly searching for a replacement and have handed a trial to former Leeds man Ryan Hall.

The 26-year-old was released from Elland Road last November after a number of disciplinary issues.

He trained with Ferguson’s side last week and is expected to to do again ahead of Saturday’s trip to Blackburn.
