Hull City have completed the signing of Tom Ince.

The 22-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal with the Tigers.

Ince had attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs this summer as well as Italian giants Inter Milan but has opted to become part of Steve Bruce’s squad after holding talks at the KC Stadium earlier today.

The pacy and direct winger came through the youth ranks at Liverpool but, after a short loan spell at Notts County in 2010/11, joined Blackpool on a permanent basis in August 2011.

He made his debut for the club in a League Cup defeat to Sheffield Wednesday later that month, scoring his first professional goals in the 2-1 victory over Doncaster Rovers that October.

Ince had another impressive season during the 2012/13 campaign, scoring 18 Championship goals from a wide position – a tally that helped him scoop Blackpool’s Player of the Year award and secure a place in the Championship Team of the Year. 

After bagging seven goals in 23 matches for the Tangerines in the first half of last season, Ince joined Crystal Palace on loan until the end of the campaign where he scored once in eight appearances for Tony Pulis’ side.

The son of former England skipper Paul, Ince has represented his country at Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 level and currently has 14 caps and three goals to his name for the U21 side.

Due to the player’s age, negotiations between the Tigers and Ince’s former club Blackpool over a compensation fee continue. Should the two clubs fail to come to an agreement, the fee will be determined by a tribunal.
