England Under-21 international Ince has long been linked with a switch to the top flight with Everton touted as his most likely destination.

"Blackpool Football Club can confirm that, following discussions with Thomas Ince and his representative, permission has been given for Thomas to discuss a loan move to a Premier League club," said a Blackpool statement.

"Thomas has expressed his ambition to play in the Premier League for the remainder of the season, a decision that the Club fully understands and supports."

Ince turned down an �8 million move to Crystal Palace in the summer.
