Marvin Emnes keen to stay on at Swansea City

MARVIN Emnes has asked Middlesbrough to let him join Swansea City on a permanent basis this summer.

The Dutch forward has impressed at the Liberty since joining Swansea on loan for a second time during the January transfer window.

And with Swansea indicating that they are keen to keep him, Emnes has asked his parent club to allow him to move on.

The 25-year-old has only one season to run on his Riverside contract, and Boro are unlikely to stand in his way if a fee can be agreed with Swansea.

"It's always nice to play in the Premier League, and that has always been my ambition," said the striker, who has scored 31 Boro goals in 162 appearances for the club.

"I had a good time with Middlesbrough, and I'm having a really good time with Swansea at the moment," Emnes said.

"I would like to stay in the Premier League, so wherever that is going to take me, I hope that is what happens.

"I had some good times at Middlesbrough. They have been nice to me, and I have been nice to them, so hopefully things will get resolved the way we all want this summer.

"Whenever I have been with Middlesbrough, I have always done my very best for them. Unfortunately, that wasn't enough to get promotion. But hopefully they will help me now by allowing me to stay in the Premier League – that would be nice."

Some Swansea fans questioned the wisdom of re-signing Emnes when he returned to Wales earlier this season.

But the pacy forward has impressed whenever called upon, and ended his loan spell in spectacular fashion with a man-of-the-match performance at Sunderland last weekend.

    I like Emnes, however there`s never been a queue of PL teams after his signature, why?

    He is a direct runner, he changes up the game from our passing style and the defenders tend to be caught out with his pace. Superb as a plan B player

    He's earned a deal with us... at the right price.

    He would have been signed permanently at the end of his previous loan spell,but a managerial change took place at Middlesborough,and the new man recalled him. I always liked Marvin,good pro,no primma donna behaviour,knows he's part of a team,etc. Oh,and he has an eye for goal,and gets fouled in the penalty area. Get him signed up asap.

    I think he's worth keeping, he's got us two penalities (one vital) and he scored a lovely goal on saturday. As a fan I got no problem seeing him in the squad. Good luck Marvin.
