Championship

Danny Graham revelation could be the answer to Blackburn’s hopes

Danny Graham revelation could be the answer to Blackburn’s hopes

Danny Graham has been in great form for Blackburn Rovers since making his return and news that he is open to the idea of finishing his career with the club will truly excite fans.

The former Sunderland forward recorded his 50th goal for the club with a brace against Wigan earlier this month and has shown the kind of goalscoring antics that promises major Championship success if they are harnessed correctly.

“I’m 33 now, I know I’m not going to be around forever,” Graham told the Lancashire Telegraph.

“I’m enjoying my football. I love being at this football club and if I can get a few more before the end of the season, I will have the off season, work hard and look to have a strong season next year.

“I certainly would. I don’t see myself moving to another club. If there was a chance I don’t think I would take it.

“I’m very settled here. I love the boys, staff, everyone around the club.”

This positive news follows a tumultuous period at Sunderland where he was shipped out on loan four times before finally making a permanent move to his current side, and Graham clearly could not be any happier after admitting he had fallen out of love with football while at the Stadium of Light.

“More importantly for me, after my time with Sunderland, I’m enjoying my football again and I want that to continue,” he admitted.

“I don’t see the need to move on or leave any time soon.”

He may be 33-years-old now, and closing in on the twilight years of his career, but Graham has shown great form since joining Ewood Park netting double figures in the previous three season.

You need only look at the case of Billy Sharp to appreciate why keeping Danny Graham is so significant. Indeed, the Blades’ star man has consistently performed at this level, rising as one of the English Football League’s most proficient forwards, and his efforts are finally paying dividend this term.

Should Graham continue this promising vein of form, there is no reason why Blackburn could not taste promotion in the next couple of years.
