Notts County's on-loan Liverpool midfielder Thomas Ince says his father Paul's advice has been invaluable as he tries to forge a career for himself.

Ince joined Notts, who are managed by Paul, until January and said playing for his dad has helped a great deal.

"Being at Liverpool changed my style of play a little bit and I got a bit lost," Ince told BBC Radio Nottingham.

"But he [his dad] said he wanted me to be the player that I was. Coming here has given me a fresher life."

Paul Ince enjoyed a glorious career playing for some of the biggest clubs in the world - including Manchester United, Liverpool and Inter Milan. He won a host of trophies and was also a mainstay of the England side.

Ince junior added: "You can't ask for much more than to have a dad like that with his advice and experience who has done what he has in the game.

"I just have to keep going and hopefully I can stay on track."
