Blackpool want to extend the loan spell of Jonjo Shelvey from Liverpool, according to talkSPORT.

Shelvey moved from the Reds to Blackpool at the end of September for an initial three months until the start of January.

Since featuring for the Tangerines, he has found the net six times in nine appearances, including a hat-trick when 'Pool beat Leeds 5-0.

The 19-year-old, who made a £1.7million move to Liverpool in 2010, has changed positions under Holloway and is now playing in a more advanced role.

“With my forward running, I think I can break and score goals," said Shelvey.

"I proved that at Leeds, setting up the first goal and scoring a few as well. I like the position the manager has put me in."

Holloway is said to want to push through a move in order to keep the player with The Seasiders until the end of the season, although it's unclear if Kenny Dalglish will be willing to let the player stay at Bloomfield Road.

The talented teenager holds the record for the youngest ever first-team player at his former side Charlton Athletic, appearing when he was just 16 years and 59 days old.
