Paul Ince's son Thomas handed Liverpool contract

A famous Liverpool and England name is on the Anfield club's new role of academy youngsters with Thomas Ince following in his father's footsteps.

Ince junior, 16, has been taken on by the club as a first-year academy trainee, but unlike his father, who was an England captain as a midfielder, Thomas is a striker.

Paul, 40, is now manager of MK Dons and took them to promotion from Coca-Cola League Two this season, after previously taking charge of Macclesfield when his playing career came to an end.

Ince played for West Ham and Manchester United before moving to Inter Milan, and cited the fact that he wanted Thomas to attend school in England as the reason for his return from Italy to join Liverpool in 1997.

The Ince family have always kept their home on the Wirral, where Thomas has worked his way successfully through the Liverpool's schoolboy teams to the point that he has now started his career as a professional.

Liverpool have released three players from last season's academy - defender Mattone Awang, winger Ben Parsonage and striker Michael Collins.

Swedish midfielder Astrit Ajdarevic, part of the FA Youth Cup winning side of 2007, is looking for a new club while still being under contract at the club.
