Sky Sports understands Swansea have tabled a bid for Blackpool star Tom Ince.

Ince has been in superb form this season for Blackpool, scoring two goals in the opening day win over Millwall as well a man of the match performance in the midweek victory over Leeds.

The 20-year-old has picked up where he left off last season when he helped Blackpool reach the Championship play-off final where they lost to West Ham.

Ince, who joined Blackpool from Liverpool, is regarded as one of the most exciting talents outside the Premier League with the skilful wide-man being named Blackpool's Young Player of the Year last season.

A host of clubs have been linked with a move for Ince, but Swansea have made a firm offer for the player as they look to add to their squad before the close of the transfer window.

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup is thought to have targeted a move for Ince as he sees him as a possible replacement for Manchester City target Scott Sinclair.

Blackpool are loath to lose Ince as they look to mount another promotion bid and it remains to be seen if they will consider Swansea's offer for Ince.
