HULL, England (AP) — English winger Tom Ince has ended his public search for a new team by staying in the Premier League and joining Hull.
The 22-year-old Ince embarked on a trip to Italy in a blaze of publicity but the player said he rejected the chance of following in his father Paul's footsteps by playing for Inter Milan.
Hull says Ince, who was out of contract at Blackpool, also "attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs this summer."
But Ince signed a two-year deal with Hull after talks Monday at the northeast club. He spent the second half of last season on loan at Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
