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.’

  • Always like Emnes. Solid performer, never hid and always made a positive contribution. Maybe he didn’t play enough football to develop into a Premier League started but this could,be his opportunity.

  • He had a knack of scoring from the bench and you wonder why we never tried him instead of Gomis, he wasn’t going to do any worse and he could finish when given a chance. Never given a proper chance here and another player we’ve kept on for too long. Not quite good enough at this level but will do well at most championship clubs

  • Wasn’t quite sure why we took him on loan the second time, clearly wasn’t a player wanted by Laudrup. He signed and didn’t get a chance, and whilst he did always give 100% effort he never looked capable of earning a regular first team place. Definitely a Championship player at best but one we should have more use of when he was first here on loan.
