Blackburn Rovers manager Owen Coyle is hoping to make Marvin Emnes’ loan move permanent next Summer
Blackburn Rovers manager Owen Coyle is hoping to make Marvin Emnes’ loan move permanent next Summer – when his contract expires at Swansea City.
The former Middlesbrough forward is available on a free in the Summer, and you’d assume that it’s highly unlikely that the Swans will offer him a new deal – but you never know when we’re handing fresh 4-year contracts out to players who aren’t exactly ‘assets’.
Emnes had two separate loan spells with the Swans – in 2010 and 2014 respectively before finally joining permanently before the start of the 2014/15 season.
The Dutchman netted 3 goals in 11 League appearances on loan, but he was never given a proper opportunity after signing a permanent deal and has still yet to score a League goal since doing so. He’s contributed in the League Cup though, scoring 3 goals in as many cup appearances since July 2014.
Emnes has quickly made an impact at Blackburn, scoring 3 goals in 6 games as well as assisting another 3.
Coyle says he’s been a big admirer of Emnes for ‘many years’ and is hoping to sign him when available on a free:
“Marvin is one I would like to sign,”
“He comes out of contract next year and he`s one I`ve always been a big admirer of for a number of years.’
