Blackpool manager Ian Holloway claims that he will not stop Thomas Ince from moving to a Premier League club.

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway has revealed that he will not stand in the way of Thomas Ince if a Premier League club declare an interest in the 20-year-old.

Ince, son of former Liverpool midfielder Paul, is a reported target for Manchester United and Holloway admits that the England youth international could leave Bloomfield Road.

"I can't keep our players, but I'm working with them to get them to a United or an Arsenal," said Holloway. "If we are not successful this year Tom may get there before I can, so do I want to stand in his way? Probably not.

"But we deserve a fair amount of money for him."

Holloway has also insisted that Ince is better than Arsenal duo Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott.

"I don't think Oxlade-Chamberlain and Walcott are better than him. If Arsenal had bought him, he would be playing for England now."

Ince has been included in the England Under-21 squad for the playoff fixtures against Serbia.
