Blackpool manager Paul Ince has confirmed the club have accepted a bid from Cardiff City for his son Thomas.

The bid is believed to be around £8 million, but Ince is unsure whether his son - who was voted the Football League's Young Player of the Year - will leave the Seasiders.

"Cardiff have come in massively for Thomas and the chairman has accepted their offer," said the manager.

"I'm not sure what the offer is as I've been away. It's a case of when he comes back, we'll sit down and see what we want to do. He loves it here and has told me he's in no rush to leave the club.

"I think it's 50/50 at the moment. It's a tricky one for me - ideally you want your son to be playing in the Premier League, but you also want him to be playing for you. I wouldn't put my hat on it that he'll be playing in the Premier League this year."
