Blackpool manager Michael Appleton insists Liverpool have yet to return with an improved offer for winger Thomas Ince.
The 20-year-old initially left Anfield 18 months ago and has blossomed at Bloomfield Road, scoring 13 goals in the Championship this season.
Wanted: Thomas Ince is expected to complete his return to Liverpool
Liverpool had an offer rejected for Ince last month and Appleton is confident the youngster will be in the side to face Fulham in the FA Cup on Saturday.
'We have not heard anything since an initial Liverpool approach a couple of weeks ago,' he said.
'As far as I am aware Thomas will have a day off tomorrow like everyone else and come back to prepare for the next game with us.'
