Middlesbrough hang onto star Emnes


Bookmark and Share

Thursday 04 August 2011

Middlesbrough winger Marvin Emnes has signed a three-year contract extension to put an end to the ongoing speculation about his future.


The Dutch winger had been strongly linked with Premier League side Swansea where he enjoyed a fruitful loan spell last season, including scoring the winning goal against fierce rivals Cardiff in the Welsh Derby.


Emnes also pulled out of a pre-season tour to Slovenia further fuelling the rumours of an imminent exit.


However this fresh deal will keep the 23-year-old at the Riverside Stadium until 2015 and manager Tony Mowbray was unsurprisingly delighted: "It is a major boost for us that he wants to be part of our future and achieve his ambitions with Middlesbrough. He can be a big player for us again this year"


The deal takes on renewed importance following the loss of striker Leroy Lita to the Swans yesterday and Emnes will be sure to take a prominent attacking role in Boro's season opener against Portsmouth on Saturday as Mowbray begins his search for Lita's replacement.
