NEWCASTLE United midfielder Dan Gosling says he doesn’t want to become “the forgotten man of football”.
Gosling last week joined Blackpool on loan until January looking to revive a once-promising career.
The 23-year-old signed for United from Everton three years ago, but he has made just 28 appearances.
“I don’t want to be the forgotten man of football,” Gosling told the Blackpool Gazette.
“This is the perfect place for me to get back playing and show everyone what I can do.
“It’s been a hard couple of years. I’ve been working so hard at Newcastle, but I just haven’t been able to get in.
“In the games I played in the Europa League and League Cup, I feel I’ve done myself justice.
“Hopefully, I can show everyone what I can do here.”
Championship club Blackpool, managed by former England midfielder Paul Ince, could attempt to extend Gosling’s loan in the New Year.
Gosling added: “We’ll see what happens in the long-term.
“Hopefully, I’ll do well, the team will do well and we’ll see.
“If all goes well, I’d love to extend this until the end of the season. It wasn’t a hard one for me.
“Once I knew of Blackpool’s interest, I went to Newcastle and told them to make it happen.
“This move is in everyone’s best interest, so I’m really happy.”
