Tom Lawrence won't rule out long-term stay at Blackburn Rovers

Leicester City youngster Tom Lawrence is due to stay at Blackburn Rovers on loan until January 3rd.

Leicester City winger Tom Lawrence has hinted to the Lancashire Telegraph that he would be open to extending his loan spell at Blackburn Rovers.

Lawrence has signed for Rovers until January 3rd, and has made a bright start to his stint at Ewood Park.

The 21-year-old came off the substitutes' bench and claimed a goal and an assist in a 3-0 win over Charlton Athletic last Saturday, and the cameo has left him wanting more first-team football.

"It’s a good club, I’m enjoying it, I hope to be playing more, and we’ll see how it goes," he said, when asked whether he would be open to extended his stay at Blackburn. 

“I’ve come to play games, that’s what I want to do, and I want to help the team get as many wins as we can.”

Lawrence's career is yet to take off at Leicester, after the youngster completed a move to the King Power Stadium from Manchester United in 2014. 

The attacking midfielder has played just once for the Foxes, with most of his appearances coming during brief loan spells at Football League clubs.

He will be hoping to make an impact at Blackburn now, though, and should be confident after making such a positive start. 

Lawrence's next chance to impress for Rovers could come at the weekend, when Gary Bowyer's men meet Hull City at the KC Stadium.
