Haris Vuckic has expressed his desire to extend his loan at Cardiff.

Vuckic, 19, is on loan from Newcastle and received his first Slovenia squad call-up in midweek following his good form with the Bluebirds.

All three parties appear to be keen on the deal, with Vuckic especially looking forward to further challenges in the Championship, telling the Evening Chronicle: "I found it a little bit harder than the Premier League. In the Premier League I had more time. Here, they tackle you straight away."

He added: "I know Newcastle is my first team but if I get a chance to play for Cardiff on loan until the end of the season, that would be great."

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is pleased with the teenager's progress at the Championship club, saying: "He's up and running there now.

"I'm sure he'll do very well for Cardiff - he'll benefit from the loan."
