Blackpool boss Paul Ince believes that his son Thomas should be deemed worthy of a £25m bid in the future.

Blackpool manager Paul Ince believes that his son Thomas could be worth £25m in the summer transfer market.

The England Under-21 international has been heavily tipped to move to the Premier League in the near future following reported interest from Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

Ince, who took over at Bloomfield Road in February, believes that his son should be deemed in a higher price bracket than Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha, who signed for Manchester United for £15m.

"If you're talking £15m for Zaha, Thomas has got to be £25m," Ince told BBC Radio Lancashire. "If you compare the two, Thomas should cost more. Zaha is a fantastic player, don't get me wrong. Zaha's a stronger runner and does a lot of tricks, whereas Thomas is more direct, he makes things happen and he scores goals.

"You've got a kid playing in the Championship who has scored 18 goals. When you look at the leading scorers, they're all strikers, and he's there amongst them. Potentially, I think he can reach that value."

Reports have claimed that Liverpool are willing to offer £4m in the summer for Ince's services, while Spurs could lodge an £8m bid.
