Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is happy with the progress of Haris Vuckic on-loan at Cardiff City.

Vuckic is already keen to extend his spell.

"I spoke to (Cardiff boss) Malky Mackay on Wednesday morning, and he's very happy with Haris," Pardew told the Evening Chronicle.

"He had a start last weekend (against Leicester City), and came off at half-time. I think the pace of the division caught him out a bit.

"He was a lot better against Peterborough. He scored a good goal, and is up and running there now.

"I'm sure he'll do very well for Cardiff. He'll benefit from the loan."
