Owen Coyle has admitted he would love to turn Marvin Emnes' loan deal with Rovers into a permanent one.
The dreadlocked Dutchman has impressed during his loan move from Swansea City, quickly becoming a fans favourite, and with his six-month deal set to end midway through next month, the manager is keen to extend his stay at Ewood.
"I would love Marvin Emnes here permanently," said Coyle.
"He really enjoys it here, he likes the football club and the fans have been very good to him and he enjoys playing for Blackburn Rovers.
"So we've certainly had dialogue between Marvin and myself, now there's another couple of parties involved in terms of Marvin's representatives and Swansea his parent club.
"Swansea really helped us out with the deal we did in bringing Marvin in for a lot less than what he actually earns. So he's one that we'd love to keep here permanently and we'll continue that dialogue and see where we'll get to."
