Blackpool face a huge battle to keep hold of on-loan Southampton winger Jason Puncheon.

The Blackpool Gazette says Puncheon has turned in some fine performances and, according to Premier League sources, has caught the eye of other clubs.

Everton, Newcastle United, Bolton Wanderers and West Bromwich Albion are all reported to be keeping tabs on his progress and could make a bid at the end of the season, when Puncheon returns to St Mary's.

It is a meteoric rise for a player so far down the pecking order at Saints before Christmas that he was loaned to Millwall.
