Blackburn boss Owen Coyle is backing Marvin Emnes to get his career back on track, following a troubled spell with Swansea.

Emnes has struggled to make an impact at the Liberty Stadium since joining the club on a permanent basis from Middlesbrough for £1.5million back in 2014, and Francesco Guidolin has allowed him to move on.

Rovers came in on transfer deadline day and snapped him up on loan, and Coyle believes the 28-year-old has what it takes to get back on track at Ewood Park.

“Marvin can play anywhere in those front positions; whether it be as a 7, a 9, a 10 or an 11,” said Coyle. “He probably feels he has not had as many chances as he would have liked at Swansea but he has been a big success in the Championship, so much so that he has gone for big money on a couple of occasions.

“What I like about him is that he’s a little bit different to the ones we’ve got. He can take the ball on himself, he can take people on, he gets shots away and he gets crosses in. He will bring quality.”

Emnes does not appear to have a future at Swansea and there is every chance the deal could be made permanent if he impresses during his time in Lancashire.
