Geordie w@**ers sniffing round Incey

Reported £8 million bid

I assume that's just for his right foot??

I know they're a bit thick up there, but if we sold Jeff Hendricks for £11 million, were not selling Ince for £8

They've been told by Fulham it's £20 million for Tom Cairney, who's a year older. Ince has scored 3 times more goals than him, and gets as many assists as he does goals.

It's funny, a few months ago, some people would snap their hands of for £8 million. But now I agree, it will take a silly offer for us to even entertain the thought.

In the summer if we fail to get promoted I could see it happening, but right now it makes no sense to sell him.

Unless he has a release clause in his contract, there's no way I can see us accepting a bid from anyone in this transfer window.

I'm hoping it's just some lazy journalism to be honest.

Not seen anything else said, so probably is lazy journalism.

Given a great interview today, I'll put it up in a minute, basically talks about how he is happy here and it suits him

Tom Ince says he is fully focused on trying to help Derby County get promoted back to the Premier League.

Ince has been in fine form for the Rams, who sit just outside the Sky Bet Championship play-off zone in seventh position.

This week, the forward has been linked with an £8m move to Derby's promotion rivals Newcastle United.

Newcastle currently occupy the second automatic promotion spot - two points behind leaders Brighton and 12 ahead of the Rams.

Ince is determined to earn himself another crack at the Premier League, having previously had brief stints in the top flight with Crystal Palace and Hull City.

And he would love it to be with Derby, who signed him for £4.75m from Hull in the summer of 2015.

"Of course I want to play at the highest level I can," he said.

"Everyone in that changing room wants to be playing at the top level and wants to get Derby County promoted.

"It takes a lot of hard work but if we can get it right, we can have a real good go at it.

"I am just concentrating on working hard and getting this club promoted.

"I want to help get this club into the top league. It's what the fans, the players, the chairman and the manager want and we've got the right infrastructure to go there.

"It's now about producing performances like we did against West Brom on a weekly basis and see where it takes us."

Ince, who turns 25 at the end of the month, hit the winner as Derby beat top flight opponents West Bromwich Albion 2-1 at the Hawthorns in the third round of the FA Cup.

He is the Rams' leading scorer this season with nine goals - eight of which have come in 15 games since Steve McClaren returned to the club as manager in October.

Ince seems to flourish under McClaren, who hailed his "Premier League quality" after the West Brom game.

The former Liverpool man has scored 20 goals in 33 games under McClaren during his two spells at Derby.

"The team relies on me to score and create goals," said Ince. "That's what I've been brought to the club to do and that's what I try to do.

"The way we play suits me down to the ground and I'm enjoying my football.

"Over the course of my career, I've always tried to show people what I can do.

"I'm thankful that Derby have given me the opportunity to play.

"The gaffer lets me express myself. In previous stints I've had in the Premier League, I wasn't given that licence.


Tom Ince hits the winner at West Brom
"Certain managers have different styles of play which maybe don't suit me as a player.

"I always believe that what I can do will cause anyone problems. That's the confidence I have in myself."

Selling first team players in January isn't something we should be considering anyway. Because of his dad, as well as his talent, Ince is high profile so he will always be the subject of rumour.
