Ince: I'll prove worth at Hull

Hull forward Tom Ince hopes to prove his worth in the Premier League in the next couple of years.

Ince, who joined the Tigers from Blackpool this summer, is considered one of the brightest young talents in the country.

The 22-year-old was named the Football League Young Player of the Year in 2013 after scoring 18 goals for Blackpool in the Championship.

Ince spent five months on loan at Crystal Palace last season but struggled to establish himself under Tony Pulis and made only five league starts.

"It's vital for me that I settle here at Hull, these are a couple of big years for me," Ince said.

"When I got off the phone with Steve Bruce and met the people here and the rest of the lads I knew it was the place for me to be.

"I want to score goals in the Premier League and prove to people and myself that I can mix it in this league."
