Blackpool winger Tom Ince has rejected a move to Cardiff City, the Welsh club have revealed.

The 21-year-old has just one year remaining on his contract with the Championship side and was the subject of a successful bid from Cardiff last month.

However, the England Under-21 international has opted to turn down a switch, citing his desire to remain close to his newborn child.

“Cardiff City Football Club can confirm that Blackpool midfielder Thomas Ince will not be joining the Bluebirds,” a statement on the newly promoted Premier League outfit’s website read.

“Having agreed a fee with Blackpool FC towards the end of June and with the player and agent happy with personal terms offered, Blackpool manager and Thomas’ father Paul confirmed on Friday that due to the recent birth of Thomas’ first child this week, the player didn’t want to leave his family or the Seasiders at this stage of his life.”

Ince began his career with Liverpool but left in 2011 having failed to make a first-team appearance.

He has since scored 26 goals in 88 outings for Blackpool and was reportedly the subject of interest from his boyhood club in January as a result.
