Reds set for Ince windfall
Posted On July 2, 2013
Liverpool are set to benefit from the sale of former youth player Tom Ince, after it was revealed that there is a clause in the 21 year olds contract which guarantees his former employers 50% of any fee paid for the player.
Both Cardiff City and Swansea City have been linked with an £8million move for the midfielder, who had was also reportedly a target for the Reds back in January, though their interest has waned as the club have pursued other targets.
Elsewhere, interest has grown in midfielder Jonjo Shelvey, with Crystal Palace and Norwich City both reportedly preparing bids for the player.
The Mirror understand that Palace are willing to meet the Reds £5million asking price for the England international, who played ten games under Eagles manager Ian Holloway during a loan spell at Blackpool back in 2011.
It is believed that Norwich would prefer to strike a loan deal for the former Charlton Athletic man, though the club are reportedly eager to cash in as Brendan Rogers attempts to recoup some of the money he has already spent in the close season.
Swansea City are also rumoured to be interested in Shelvey, though they are said to be unwilling to meet Liverpool’s valuation.
