Thomas Ince has arrived in Milan with his father Paul Ince to view Inter's facilities, as the 22-year-old winger moves closer to joining the Nerazzurri.

Thomas' contract with Blackpool expires this summer and Inter can pick him up for a small compensation fee, around €200,000. A move to Inter would mean retracing the footsteps of his father Paul.

But Thomas is clear that no deal has yet been done.

"I'm not an Inter player yet", he told Sky Italia.


"I'm very happy to be here for two or three days in the meantime.

"Inter is a fantastic club and Italy is a great country, of which I have many fond memories."

And Thomas' father Paul, who played for the Italian giants from 1995 until 1997, is excited about his son potentially also pulling on an Inter shirt.

"It's incredible Tom is here at 22, he was five back then. I spent a beautiful time here.

"The important thing for Tom is to be here today, to see the training ground, get to know the stadium and the city.

"Then we will go back home and take a decision."
