'Pool Star Drawing Attention in Ireland

'Pool Star Drawing Attention in Ireland

Seasiders loanee Seamus Coleman has received many plaudits since his loan move from Everton.

And now the national press from Ireland, his homeland, are sitting up and taking notice.

After a string of good performances for Blackpool, Coleman is building for the future and believes the experience gained at Bloomfield Road will stand him in good stead.

'I had a good chat with David Moyes before I came here, he told me straight that I was doing well and that I was still in his plans but he just wanted me to get some more experience.

'I am getting games and that's the main reason I came here -- to get more experience,' Coleman told the Irish Herald, who came over to cover the 2-0 win over Doncaster yesterday.

Since joining on a month's loan - a deal which could be extended to cover the playoffs - Coleman has yet to be in a losing 'Pool team, winning four and drawing one.

His attacking runs from the back have been a delight to watch, culminating in wonderful goal at Scunthorpe on Good Friday.

Whilst his feet are firmly on the ground, the Ireland Under 21 international feels he has a future at Goodison Park: 'David Moyes has managed in the Championship, he knows it's a good standard and a good test for me. Everton have been in touch all along since I came here on loan. Alan Stubbs, the coach at Everton, rings me after every game with Blackpool to see how I got on, and the club are following my progress, so that's good to know.

'But Moyes has told me that my future lies with Everton and that they certainly don't have any plans to sell me. I have 18 months left on my contract so I intend to see that out and they want to keep me, they seem happy with how I am doing,' added Coleman.

'And Everton is the place to be now. It's a pity our run in Europe is over, I played in three games in the Europa League and that was a great experience, but I feel we could really do something at Everton next season, and I want to be part of that.'
