Liverpool striker Dani Pacheco eyes loan move


Liverpool starlet Dani Pacheco feels a loan move might be best for his career, but insists he wants to stay with the Reds.

The Spanish forward, who impressed at this year's European Under-19 Championships, has been reassured he is part of boss Roy Hodgson's plans.

The youngster has been linked with a switch back to his homeland, as he has had a lack of first team opportunities, and has managed just nine first-team appearances so far.

Pacheo, along with Martin Kelly, has now extended his stay at Anfield until 2014, after Damien Comolli (Liverpool's director of football strategy) promised them both that they were integral to Liverpool's future. However, the former Barcelona academy player has admitted he may need to look elsewhere for first-team opportunities, although he says he is 'delighted' with his new contract.

"I'm being sincere when I say that I see my future here, I'd like it to be so," Pacheco told

"I'm training well and (manager) Roy Hodgson is happy with me; he's seen what I can do in the Europa League.

"But in order to get some playing time, and if it suits the club, the best thing would be for me to go out on loan.

"However, we will have to see how things stand in January and if the club are in agreement, then a loan move might be best for everyone."

Liverpool travel to St. James' Park this weekend and hope to improve on their poor away form. Striker Fernando Torres returns after the birth of his child and with Steven Gerrard (hamstring) still needing a week to recover from his injury, Roy Hodgson is likely to make one change to accommodate Torres. For Newcastle, Joey Barton (groin) is unlikely to start and Fabricio Coloccini and Mike Williamson are both serving suspensions. Kevin Nolan (ankle), however is likely to be fit again, following two weeks on the sidelines and Danny Guthrie (ankle) still may make the squad, as his injury is not as bad as first thought.
