“I am on loan with an option to stay and I’d like to go with that option if possible, I’d like to show what I can do and stay.

“It is a really nice big club – Newcastle would be a great place to play, I’d like to be important for the team with goals and assists as well as working hard.

“I’ve had my first full game (Chelsea) and I feel good, hopefully I can go on from here and get it sorted in the summer.
