Hull City midfielder Thomas Ince has been signed by Championship side Derby County on a loan deal for the remainder of this season.
With deadline day nearing its end, the only movement for the struggling Tigers so far has been a subtraction with Steve Bruce reportedly running himself ragged trying to bring in some much needed help before the window closes. It has been a series of personnel disasters for Bruce since the summer, with names like Gaston Ramirez, Hatem Ben Arfa and Abel Hernandez having been massive disappointments, especially in recent months. Derby meanwhile sit currently second in the Championship and will hope that Ince will be the final piece needed to propel them to the top flight next season. Mon, Feb 2, 2015 04:36:00 PM

Tom Ince moved to Hull City on a "free" over the summer but apparently free isn't as free as you might think with the Seasiders awarded compensation that could rise as high as £2.3m.

The rules around signing young prospects whose contracts have expired are not the most transparent but the gist is that the club that developed the player is due compensation for developing the player if that player's contract expires and he leaves before the age of 23. The size of the fee is the part that isn't entirely transparent but presumably it is tied to Ince's future exploits for club and country.

We didn't get much of a chance to judge Tom Ince in his brief Premier League cameo last season but this season started off very strong for the Son-of-Paul.

I guess we need to initiate the Mido All-Stars (for guys who take a lot of shots and a lot of them end up being shots on target) in addition to the Joel Ward All-Stars (for guys who get a lot of blocks/interceptions/tackles). If/when we do create that team then Tom Ince is looking like a strong candidate based on his Week 1 performance. His three SOTs combined with three corners won saw him pile up an exceptional 12 points in the Yahoo format despite not scoring or assisting. With Robert Snodgrass reportedly out for six months and Shane Long off to Southampton, Ince seems likely to get a serious run in the team and should have very solid potential.

Tom Ince has been a big name in the transfer rumor mill for the last two seasons but with his move to Hull City complete, what can we expect?

Ince brings the dreaded "potential" tag with him due in part to his skills and in part due to his last name. With a relatively strong midfield already present at Hull City, it isn't evident that Ince will be able to push his way into the starting line-up this season. Robbie Brady, David Meyler, Ahmed Elmohamady, Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore were already entrenched at HCFC before Ince's arrival and Robert Snodgrass has joined the squad as well. It seems likely that Snodgrass will get the first chance at significant minutes in the wide areas with Brady and Ince fighting it out for any remaining time. Expect Ince to get a chance to be an impact substitute off the bench with an occasional spot start but more than that is unlikely.

Steve Bruce has added another name to his summer acquisitions with the arrival of Tom Ince on a free after his contract with Blackpool expired.

Ince broke through to the Premier League with a goal and an assist in his first competitive match with Crystal Palace after coming over from Blackpool on loan in January. After that first performance though, his star faded with only seven additional appearances (4 starts) that yielded no goals or assists. Still, out of contract, young and blessed with speed and success at the Championship level, Ince was always going to get another chance to settle. His chances comes with a Hull side that will need reinforcements as it faces the unusual combination of European competition and trying to stay up after finishing 16th in the table. It is likely that he starts the season as a key reserve with a chance to earn a starting spot as he gets acclimated.

Tom Ince marked his Crystal Palace and Premier League debut with a goal and an assist in Palace's win against West Brom Saturday.

Tom Ince has seemingly been linked with just about every Premier League club over the last 18 months. He has finally arrived in the league and he immediately showed why he has been so talked about with a goal after fifteen minutes and an assist on fellow debutante Joe Ledley's second goal. Marouane Chamakh drew and converted a penalty for Palace's third goal to confirm the win in the second half.
