Nonda after Permanent Rovers Deal
Not for the first time on loan Blackburn Rovers striker Shabani Nonda has voiced his determination to win himself a permanent move to Ewood Park when his loan spell ends.
The Congolese International has had a mixed time during his loan at Ewood from Italian club Roma thus far with many people still undecided as to whether or not they think he will indeed earn a contract in the summer; more arguably leaning towards him not.
"My mind is just to finish the season here - there are still a lot of games to come and I'm just thinking about them.
"But I like it at Blackburn and I like playing in the Premiership so staying here is something I'd consider.
"However, it is not just up to me. I have to show the club that they should try to sign me permanently.
"There are still at least 12 or 13 games before the year ends for me to do as well as I can."
Nonda seems a really nice guy and his effort and commitment can't really be doubted but I'm not sure that he has that something else which makes him stand out above anyone else below Benni McCarthy we already have? When all are fit he's arguable fallen behind Matt Derbyshire and Jason Roberts as it is.
With Benni McCarthy set to miss the FA Cup tie tomorrow (as if it wasn't tough enough already!) Nonda has a very good shot of partnering Roberts should Mark Hughes deploy a two pronged attack, or even leading the line alone should Hughes adopted a lone striker as he did earlier in the season when we visited the Emirates Stadium. That day Nonda scored twice but as we know we were harshly beaten 6-2...
