Southampton are reportedly lining up a bid for Blackpool winger Tom Ince.

The 20-year-old, who is the son of former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul Ince, is in the final year of his contract at Bloomfield Road.

Saints boss Nigel Adkins is now ready to offer £2m plus Jason Puncheon for his services, according to The Mirror.

Ince narrowly missed out on Premier League football with the Seasiders next season after their Championship play-off final defeat to West Ham United.
