Shelvey hopes to convince Liverpool boss Dalglish with Blackpool loan

Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey feels his loan move to Blackpool will help him catch the eye of manager Kenny Dalglish.

Shelvey, 19, has not started a Premier League game for Liverpool since his £1.7million move from Charlton in May 2010.

The midfielder said: "Moving from a big fish in a small pond to a small fish in a big pond knocked me back a bit.

"I wasn't playing every week and I wasn't getting chances, so I felt I had a little bit to prove.

"I knew something could be coming up because I had been to see Kenny Dalglish and asked if I could go out on loan.

"When I heard Blackpool were interested, I was keen. I spoke to Charlie Adam and he said to come here."
