Tom Ince today turned down a deal to sign a contract with newly promoted Premier League side Cardiff City.

The decision follows much speculation that the transfer from his current club Blackpool was all but completed. According to Sky SportsCardiff had already agreed a transfer fee with Championship side Blackpool to send the striker to the Welsh club and had even come to terms with Ince’s agent.

The deal had been for a reported £8 million, according to the BBCThe news that Ince declined the offer to change clubs came as a shock to Cardiff, who were anticipating bringing the talented young midfielder to Cardiff City Stadium to help them in their first ever Premier League season.

Ince points to his family as the main reason for holding him back from a move to Cardiff, according to Cardiff’s official website. The 21 year old had his first son born to him yesterday and with his father, Manchester United legend Paul Ince, also currently managing Blackpool, Ince decided it was in his best interest to remain in the north west of England.

Ince scored 18 goals in 44 matches and added an impressive 14 assists to that total last year for Blackpoool. The quick midfielder will open the season away to Doncaster on August 3rd with Blackpool.
