Liverpool are ready to bring back Thomas Ince from Blackpool and are looking to pay £6m for his signature according to reports from The Sun.

The 20-year-old was one of the brightest prospects in the Liverpool academy but having seen little hope of making the senior grade he was allowed to leave for a measly fee of £250,000 just 18 months ago.

New manager Brendan Rodgers has given enough backing to youngsters at the club and this might prompt Ince, the son of club legend Paul Ince, to join the Merseyside club for the second time in his career.

Rivals Manchester United are also keen to land the youngster but as it stands Liverpool are firm favourites in the race to sign him.

The Reds will get 35 percent of the fee back as per the sell on clauses in Ince’s deal, which means he could be available for £4m only.

Ince has been in a sparkling form this season and everyone associated with the Merseyside club must be feeling how ghastly error it was to let him go. But, hopefully there will be a chance to make amends as Rodgers wants the England U-21 to return to Anfield, his home in truest sense.
