Blackpool legend Armfield big fan of Everton youngster Coleman

Blackpool legend Jimmy Armfield is a big fan of Everton fullback Seamus Coleman.

Coleman has pushed himself into regular first team contention at Goodison Park, scoring his first goal for the Club in the Carling Cup tie at Brentford last week and earning a first Premier League start at Fulham on Saturday.

"Seamus did really well for Blackpool and I think going there was really good for him," Armfield told evertonfc.com.

"He was a real favourite at the club, the fans loved him and I think they would have signed him had they had the chance but obviously David Moyes wouldn't want to lose a talented lad like that.

"He is very adventurous, a very progressive player and I thought when he came on against Manchester United the other week the game changed a bit.

"He has a good engine and also a very good temperament. He had a good trip at Blackpool, he went to Wembley and was part of winning promotion and it was all good experience for him."
