Michael Appleton approach will not affect Thomas Ince's future

Blackpool winger Thomas Ince tells BBC Radio Lancashire that Blackburn's move for manager Michael Appleton has not affected his own future with the Championship club.

Ince, a reported target for Liverpool, confirms that Appleton did not take Thursday's training session, just hours after Blackpool rejected an approach from their Lancashire rivals to speak to the 37-year-old about the managerial vacancy at Ewood Park.

Winger Ince insists that the players have one primary concern, beating Charlton at The Valley on Saturday.
