Rovers Seeking Di Santo Extension
Blackburn Rovers' desire to keep hold of Franco Di Santo isn't exactly a secret is it, however, merely extending Di Santo's loan might not be all we try to do??
It's understood that Rovers' intentions for the Argentine striker go beyond the end of the year and even beyond the end of the season?! Di Santo is scheduled to return to Stamford Bridge in January, however, Di Santo has himself said that he'd prefer to stay at Ewood Park if he isn't going to be given an extended run with Chelsea (and not just used during the African Cup of Nations). The idea of extending the striker's loan until the end of the season is understood to be something that negotiations will discuss (starting next month) but the possibility of signing the 20-year-old permanently at the end of the season is also something that could happen?? The Lancashire Evening Telegraph is reporting this, however, they also understand that this option isn't going to be explored at all until the end of the season but extending the loan is something that Rovers are very much hopeful of.
Personally I think that Di Santo has a superb future ahead of him but I can't see him getting into the Chelsea side regularly, particularly this season so if we can extend the loan until the end of the season who knows what might happen as players do become accustomed to playing regular first time football and if we continue to offer that to Di Santo who knows what the future might bring??
