Swansea City transfer target Tom Ince, as per BBC Wales, is involved in an awkward scenario at Blackpool because manager Paul Ince, Tom's father, could be fired, as per Chris Bascombe at The Telegraph:
Paul Ince was fighting to keep his job at Blackpool on Sunday night following crisis talks with Karl Oyston, the club's chairman.
With Ince's son Thomas also in the midst of a transfer tug of war during which there have been suggestions that the manager and his employer's interests have collided, a parting of the ways has seemed inevitable for the past few days.
Tom's future depends on the reaction of Paul, whose former manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, described as a "volatile character," as per The Telegraph.
Should Tom's father get sacked, would Tom submit a transfer request out of loyalty?
In that situation, Blackpool would get a fee rather than nothing at all if Tom were to leave on a Bosman in the summer.
Or, will Tom be a professional and play out the rest of his contract?
There might even be a third option: call it the scorched-earth policy, Paul Ince style.
Tom could sit out the rest of his contract and leave on a free transfer. Now that would be typical "Guv'nor" behaviour from Paul.
Oh, and here's a twist, according to John Edwards at the Daily Mail, Monaco could beat Swansea to signing Tom.
Ligue 1 contending Monaco? In recent weeks, the club has been playing a very compact 4-3-1-2, which does not fit Tom's playing style.
