MICHAEL Laudrup reckons Tom Ince is a star of the future - but has no idea if he will get the chance to shine at Swansea City.

Swansea have registered their interest in Ince, who could leave Blackpool this month with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.

But despite suggestions that a deal is in the pipeline, chairman Huw Jenkins has stated that Swansea are a long way from landing the former Liverpool youngster.

Now Laudrup has reiterated that he admires Ince - but offered little clue as to whether Swansea will get him this month.

When asked about the winger, Laudrup said: "A lot of things have been said, but I can't really say so much about that.

"Tom Ince is a talent. He has played for England Under-21s, but he still has a long way to go.

"One thing is playing in the Championship, another is playing in the Premier League.

"But he is a big talent for the future for whoever picks him up or signs him."

When asked whether Swansea are preparing a bid for Ince, Laudrup added: "I don't really know.

"There are a lot of rumours, a lot of things said and a lot of speculation, so let's leave it there."

Everton, Cardiff, Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Monaco are among a host of clubs who have also been linked with Ince.
