Will Rodgers go back in for former Reds youngster after Euro snub?

Liverpool may look to bring the forward back to the club after an apparent move abroad failed to materialise.

One of the country's most promising wingers, Thomas Ince, looks like staying in the Premier League, something that could convince former club Liverpool to re-sign the player.

After flirting with a move to a European giant, with both Monaco and Inter Milan linked with the son of England legend Paul Ince, the Blackpool player has revealed to the media that he sees his future very much in England.

"After lengthy discussions with my family I have decided that my immediate future in the game lies in the Premier League," Ince said.

"I am flattered to have received such strong interest from several big European clubs. But I believe at this early stage of my career I need to continue my football education in England.

"I would like to thank the clubs overseas for their interest and kindness. I still have ambitions to one day play in Europe. I am now looking forward to what lies ahead next season."

The news will be welcome at Bloomfield Road, with Blackpool set to receive a compensation fee if he moves to another English club, but due nothing if he moves abroad.

It may see Brendan Rodgers go back in for a player that left Liverpool before he took charge there. As Ince proved himself one of the best players in the Championship, the Northern Irishman was credited as approaching the wide man about a return to Merseyside, and despite a move failing to materialise, support on the wing is once again an area the Reds boss is looking to reinforce. 

Other former suitors such as Stoke City, and Crystal Palace, the club he was on loan with for six months this year, may now get in touch with the 22-year-old, while the Express are linking Ince with the likes of Spurs, Everton and Newcastle. Despite this, Liverpool are likely to hold all the cards if they can convince the player he will be involved in the first team squad in his second spell at Anfield.
