Date of birth
Tom Ince joined Huddersfield Town for an undisclosed fee from Derby County on 4 July 2017.
The son of former England captain Paul Ince, Tom was born in Stockport on 30 January 1992, but joined the Liverpool FC Academy and progressed through the ranks at Anfield.
Alongside regular appearances for England’s age groups – Tom is capped up to Under-21 level – the winger made his professional debut for the Reds in the 2010/11 EFL Cup at home to Northampton Town.
A short spell on loan at Notts County followed that same season, when he scored twice in eight appearances.
Ince then made the bold decision to turn down a new contract at the Club in the summer of 2011 in search of First Team football, opting to join Blackpool in the Sky Bet Championship.
It was with the Tangerines that Tom hit the headlines. Scoring 33 goals in 113 games, Tom was crowned the EFL’s Young Player of the Year and named in the PFA’s Team of the year in 2013, earning rave reviews for his performances.
That earned him a move back to the Premier League in January 2014 when he joined Town’s opening day opponent Crystal Palace on loan and the following summer he made his switch to the top-flight permanent, joining Hull City.
Ince played for the Tigers in the Europa League that season, but spent time on loan at both Nottingham Forest and Derby County as the 2014/15 season progressed.
He impressed in the white and black of Derby, with 11 goals in 18 loan appearances earning him a move to Pride Park in 2015.
