Swansea City are awaiting a bid from Owen Coyle and Blackburn Rovers for on-loan forward Marvin Emnes as they look to offload the Dutchman, according to the South Wales Evening Post

As Emnes’ loan stint as Ewood Park is set to come to an end, Swansea City are looking to sell the former Middlesbrough forward on a permanent basis.

The 28-year-old is entering the last six months of his contract at the Welsh club and it appears that Paul Clement and Swansea City are hoping to recoup some form of transfer fee, rather than allowing him to leave for free in the summer.

Marvin Emnes spent the first half of the season on loan at Blackburn Rovers, making twenty Championship appearances which resulted in three goals and three assists for Owen Coyle’s side.

Owen Coyle has stated his ambition to sign Marvin Emnes on a permanent basis and a dialogue has opened between Swansea City and Blackburn Rovers, but the Lancastrian side has yet to place a bid for the Dutchman.

It is expected that Blackburn will make a bid imminently for Emnes as they attempt to ward off any potential fellow suitors.

Blackburn Rovers fans, what do you make of the news? Would you like to see Marvin Emnes join permanently? IS he the calibre of signing that Blackburn needs? Have you been impressed by his performances? How much do you think he is worth? Do you expect Emnes to join permanently? Let us hear your thoughts and opinions in the comment section below!
