Thomas Ince insists he is committed to Blackpool after their Championship play-off final defeat.

The young winger had an outstanding season with the Tangerines helping them into the play-offs where they lost out to West Ham United.

Ince, who scored at Wembley, has been linked with a move away less than 12 months after joining from Liverpool.

But Ince, who was named the club's Young Player of the Year, insists he is committed to the Bloomfield Road outfit.

"Every player wants to play at the highest level and I want to play for my country too, right now my future is at Blackpool," he told Sky Sports.

"I will have a nice rest in the summer and come back and get ready to go for the Championship again."

Ian Evatt backed both Ince and wing colleague Matty Phillips - also linked with a big-money move - to stay put.

"It will do them good to stay for another year," Evatt told Sky Sports.

"There is going to be big clubs interested but young players need time and I am sure the gaffer will bring them on."
