​Derby County winger Tom Ince is ready for a move to the Premier League, according to his dad, ​the former England midfielder Paul Ince. 


The young Ince has attracted interest from Prem new boys Huddersfield Town, who have had two bids rejected thus far according to ​Sky Sports. The second bid submitted was £7.5m, but it is believed Derby are holding out for closer to £10m.

The Rams will be hoping to hold onto last season's top scorer, with Ince netting 15 times to help his side finish ninth. However, with the club missing out on the play-offs and promotion once again, a move to England's top flight looks increasingly likely for the 25-year-old. 


Ince has played in the Premier League before, featuring for both Hull City and Crystal Palace. But after failing to make an impact during previous attempts, his dad believes he has enough quality to make a lasting impression this time around. 

The ex-Manchester United and Liverpool star said, as quoted by the ​Mirror: "There has been a lot of interest from Huddersfield. That is down to the respective chairman Mel Morris and Dean Hoyle to discuss.


“I think he should be playing in the Premier League, if he goes to another club great if not, he is happy to stay at Derby and try and do it with Derby.


“At the age he is at now, 25, for two years he should have been in the Premier League anyway. It is tough, we were hoping he was going to do that with Derby but this year didn't work out.

Whether Ince gets another opportunity in the Prem remains to be seen, but his dad has pointed to his goal tally last season as the main reason he deserves another chance. 


“I always believe he is a Premier League player. I know he can do it. I think he has proven that scoring 15 goals from the right wing takes some doing."
