Thomas Ince is having talks with Swansea

Reports claim that the winger is expected to arrive at Selhurst Park on loan until the end of the season, despite interest from clubs across Europe.

Ince - son of England and Manchester United legend Paul Ince - is a highly-regarded former England U21 player who had been tipped to move to big-spending Monaco. That move may still go ahead in the summer, but for now Palace's reported £1 million loan fee secured the services of the 22-year-old.

The Seasiders had confirmed Ince would hold talks over a move to the top-flight in a club statement which read: "Blackpool Football Club can confirm that, following discussions with Thomas Ince and his representative, permission has been given for Thomas to discuss a loan move to a Premier League club.

"Thomas has expressed his ambition to play in the Premier League for the remainder of the season, a decision that the club fully understands and supports."

Swansea's Welsh rivals Cardiff agreed an £8 million fee for Ince last summer, but the player eventually turned down a move to Cardiff City Stadium.
