SWANSEA City have rejected talk that they are in talks with Blackpool’s Tom Ince, with Huw Jenkins insisting: “It is not me in the picture.”
A photograph of Ince and dad Paul – who is also Seasiders manager - at a table with another man has this afternoon emerged on Twitter, leading to frenzied speculation that Jenkins was holding discussions with the England Under-21 man.

But although Swansea are interested in signing Ince, they have not agreed a fee with Blackpool and are therefore not at the stage where they could hold discussions with the player.
When asked about the picture by the Evening Post, Jenkins said: “It’s not me, and it’s not anyone to do with Swansea City.”
