Report: Tom Ince to hold talks with Hull City, amid interest from Derby and Newcastle

Tom Ince

Derby and Newcastle want to sign the Hull City attacker.

Tom Ince is set to hold talks with Hull concerning his future today, according to a report on Sky Sports.

The English attacker spent a spell on loan with Derby County last term, netting 11 goals in 18 games, and a permanent transfer looked on the cards. However, following Hull’s relegation to the second tier, it is evident that the club want to keep ahold of him.

The 23-year-old is a player far to good to be in the Championship, and with the need to win promotion to the Premier League, he would be a vital component of the side.

The report suggests that Derby are still interested in completing a permanent deal for Ince, whilst Newcastle are also said to be keen on signing him, and the winger will sit down with Hull today to discuss his future.

He has just one year left on his contract at the KC Stadium, and if there is no chance he will sign a new deal with the Tigers, they are sure to sell him this summer for a fee rather than lose him for free next summer.

If a deal is to be struck this summer, Hull will be able to demand a large fee for Ince despite having just one year left on his contract. He proved last season that he has all the talent to improve any side, and although unproven in the Premier League, Newcastle need to sign attacking reinforcements.

There are no indications as to whether Ince is willing to extend his contract with Hull, or even stay next season to see out his deal, but it is likely that the state of his future will be much more plain in the coming days.
