Hughes, Ince, Rhodes and Ings - Where are they headed?

Tom Ince England U 21s

Skybet have opened up markets on Derby County, Blackpool, Blackburn Rovers and Burnley stars but where do they think they will go?

The most talked about teenager in the Football League is Derby County & England under-21 midfielder Will Hughes. There has been a lot of speculation around him joining Liverpool and I guess it doesn't take a genius to work-out why the Merseyside club are heavy favourites to land the Derby County prospect when the January transfer window opens, despite claims from Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers that there is no interest on his side.

Liverpool find themselves at 3/1 to land the player, while Arsenal sit at 8/1, Manchester United at 12/1 and Chelsea in at fourth at a whopping 28/1.

Derby will be very reluctant to let their midfield maestro leave in January, and after picking up form and results the Rams look like a good bet for automatic promotion so will do anything to rid the advances of clubs coming on to their young star.

Another Football League midfielder high in the spot light is Blackpool winger Tom Ince, who has surprisingly earned the interest of European clubs as well as English sides.

Ajax and Liverpool are joint favourites to sign the player, both priced at 5/1 but are closely followed by Everton and Man United both at 7/1 and finally Inter Milan at 8/1 to bag the players services.

Blackpool manager and father of the player Paul Ince is reportedly keen on the player getting the best possible move for himself, and is concerned about the lack of first-team opportunities at top clubs. So, I think he would be quietly keen for the player to join a side that wanted to make him the star and perhaps at Ajax, he would have that chance.

There is also markets on the impressive Football League deadly duo Jordan Rhodes and Danny Ings.

Burnley's Danny Ings most likely destination is SPL champions Celtic, as they look to build a side capable of improving on this years Champions League campaign in 2014. Cardiff City, Leeds United and Sunderland are also credited with interest with the player and all fall sort of odds of 10/1 or lower.

Blackburn Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes is heavily tipped with a move from Ewood Park within the next 6/8 months due to financial implications that have left the club on the brink of FFP punishment.

Crystal Palace are currently the favourites to sign the player, but despite there being known interest, Tony Pulis has already admitted that the club couldn't afford the player transfer fee. Other Premier League strugglers in Cardiff City, Hull City, Stoke City and Sunderland are all priced at 14/1 to sign the emphatic Blackburn Rovers goal-scorer but the destination looks largely a mystery.
