JAMES COPPINGER is poised to extend his loan extension at Hartlepool United until the end of the season.

The 21-yearold winger was originally on loan from Newcastle United for four weeks but the Pool hierarchy have been impressed by the Middlesbrough-born wide-man.

Coach Chris Turner admitted the youngster could win himself a permanent move to Victoria Park if he does enough in the remaining two months of the campaign.

"James is under constant review with the prospect of a long-term contract here," Turner told the club's official website.

Coppinger has netted twice in ten appearances for the club as Pool have surged up the Division Three ladder.
