Newcastle target Puncheon enjoying Blackpool loan

Southampton winger Jason Puncheon is enjoying his loan at Blackpool.

Puncheon's impressive form has caught the eye of several other Premier League clubs, with Newcastle United, Bolton Wanderers and West Bromwich Albion all believed to be contemplating a summer bid for the tricky attacker, says the Blackpool Gazette.

Puncheon said: "In my first two games here, I don't know if I was a little bit star-struck because this is the Premier League but I didn't do myself justice.

"Since then, I think I've found my feet and I've been working hard day in, day out, to prove myself and get the minutes on the pitch to show what I can do. We rotate positions and I've played in a few roles - on the left and the right, and as an attacking midfielder.

"That suits me because we can move around and express ourselves when we go forward.

"I'm loving it here. The lads have been fantastic with me and the fans are superb. They always support us and never get on our backs, which is what you need. That support could be crucial come the end of the season."
