Sky Sports is reporting today that Cardiff City have all but secured the services of Tom Ince today and are only waiting on confirmation from the young midfielder tomorrow to complete the signing.

Ince, a 21 year old English player who is the son of United legend Paul Ince, will be leaving Championship side Blackpool to join a club that has been recently promoted from the English second tier. This will be the first time Ince has seen top flight football, should he decide to join Cardiff.

Blackpool have accepted the bid from Cardiff to sign Ince and terms have been agreed upon with Ince’s agent.

“We’ve had a bid accepted by Blackpool. We’ve agreed terms with the agent,” said Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay, according to Sky Sports.

“Tom and his dad were both on holiday and on a professional course at the time, so Monday was the earliest they could get down to us. We had a good chat, a cup of tea and a biscuit and a look about the place.

“Tom said the last couple of days he had a domestic issue to deal with, but Friday morning the ball’s in their court and on Friday morning we’ll have a decision one way or another.”

With a decision now in the hands of the young midfielder, Cardiff can only sit back and hope that Ince decides Cardiff is the club he would like to play for. Ince was electric in the Championship last year, scoring 18 goals in 44 matches and adding an impressive 14 assists to that total. His ability to take on defenders from the wing or through the middle allowed him to really shine in the Championship.

If Cardiff are able to sign Ince, the midfielder will most likely make his first Premier League match appearance for the club on August 17th away to West Ham before playing his first home match against big spenders Manchester City on August 25th.
