Blackburn Rovers striker Danny Graham has revealed that he wants to stay at Ewood Park for the rest of his career.
The 33-year-old has become a key figure for the club, with his goals helping to fire Rovers to an immediate return to the Championship from League One last season, before establishing the club’s position back in the second tier this campaign. The striker’s current contract at Ewood Park expires at the end of next season, having made enough starts for the club this season to trigger a twelve-month extension on his previous deal.
Graham, who recently passed fifty goals for the club with a brace in the 3-0 win over Wigan, told The Lancashire Telegraph: “I’m 33 now, I know I’m not going to be around forever.
“I’m enjoying my football. I love being at this football club and if I can get a few more before the end of the season, I will have the offseason, work hard and look to have a strong season next year.”
When asked about whether he would like to continue his stay at Ewood beyond his current contract, the striker added: “I certainly would. I don’t see myself moving to another club. If there was a chance I don’t think I would take it.
“I’m very settled here. I love the boys, staff, everyone around the club.”
This will be music to the ears of many Rovers fans. The already popular striker has been in outstanding form this season and with Rovers’ other strikers struggling with form and fitness his presence and goals have been crucial, as has his partnership with Rovers’ other standout attacker Bradley Dack.
Graham’s ability to play three games a week shows that he’s still got plenty in his legs, so fans could be hoping to see another Graham contract extension sooner rather than later.
