MARVIN Emnes could be on his way to the Premier League – with Swansea City.
The Welsh side clinched their place in the top flight for the first time in almost three decades when they thumped Reading 4-2 in the npower Championship play-off final at Wembley on Bank Holiday Monday.
Emnes spent a happy and successful loan spell at the Liberty Stadiumn this season and Swans boss Brendan Rodgers would love to get him back.
The 23-year-old Dutchman, a former Netherlands international at U21 level, fitted in seamlessly to Swansea’s smooth football style and was a big hit in South Wales.
Boro boss Tony Mowbray doesn’t want to lose him and told Boro’s own website: “I would like to extend Marvin’s contract and keep him here longer term.”
Swansea’s win means that Boro now know all their Championship destinations for 2011-12 following Swansea’s win over the Royals.
West Ham, Blackpool and Birmingham have come down from the top flight while Brighton, Southampton and Peterborough (via Sunday’s 3-0 play-off final win over Huddersfield) have come up from League One.
