IN-form Blackburn Rovers defender Alex Baptiste may only be six weeks into his season-long loan from Championship rivals Bolton Wanderers but he has already made his mind up – he doesn’t want to go back.

Baptiste is loving life at Ewood Park after a testing first season at the Macron Stadium where he was mostly played out of position at left back.

MORE TOP STORIES:

And the 28-year-old would have no hesitation in joining Rovers permanently next summer if the club is in the position to.

Baptiste said: “It’s fantastic, I love the place.

“The staff and the fans have been absolutely fantastic, I feel at home here, I couldn’t have asked for a better club.

“I don’t want to go back!

“I can definitely see a future here.

“The staff have been fantastic, the manager has been unbelievable, and I’m really enjoying my football again, which for the past 18 months I’ve haven’t done.

“I am smiling again.

“I know it is early doors and I’ve still got to prove myself, but if I could sign here then, yes, I’d snap their hands off.”

The versatile Baptiste was signed by Rovers boss Gary Bowyer, pictured, with a view to playing right back.

However the former Premier League star has impressed in his natural position at centre back after Matt Kilgallon – who will hope to be in contention for Saturday’s trip to Wolves – came off halfway through the season opener at home to Cardiff City at the start of the month with a back injury.

But Baptiste, who was desperately unlucky to give away a penalty in last weekend’s 3-2 home win over Bournemouth, is not taking his place for granted.

He said: “I haven’t played centre half for a good 18 months but I feel it’s my best position.

“I feel as if I’m playing okay but you are only as good as your last game – and the last game I gave away a penalty!

“So it’s just a case of continuing to work hard and prepare for a big game at Wolves.”

Rovers’ preparations for the trip to Molineux are including Jordan Rhodes after owners Venky’s rejected Hull City’s attempts to sign the prolific striker.

With Venky’s refusing to budge from their stance – to the frustration of the Tigers – Baptiste says it is his up to and him and his team-mates to help Rhodes get to the Premier League by winning promotion.

“He’s the best finisher in the Championship, every season he gets 25-30 goals, so we’d be delighted to keep him,” said Baptiste, who played in the top flight with Blackpool.

“He deserves to play in the Premier League and our job is to help to get him there.

“That’s our main aim and if Jordan is part of it, that would be unbelievable.”

Bowyer yesterday returned from India following his pre-planned meeting with Venky’s.

On arriving back at Brockhall Bowyer held talks with Rovers managing director Derek Shaw – who did not make the trip to Pune – about the club’s plans for the final six days of the transfer window.

So far this summer Bowyer has been restricted to two free transfers, Chris Brown and Luke Varney, and loan signing Baptiste.

absolutely! you can see why the ref gave it, but there was clearly no contact. however, it wouldn't be a rovers game without a refereeing howler against us! :)

baptiste has looked pretty accomplished in the middle given he has not had too long to gel with players like hanley. we're still conceding goals, obviously, but you get a sense that some regular game time for that pair could lead to improvement in that area. kilgallon is decent in there too, though, so it will be an interesting selection dilemma for bowyer when he's fit again. i would rather the decision be about which two of hanley, kilgallon and baptiste to play in the centre, rather than whether to use baptiste or lowe on the right. leave lowe in there, as i think he provides better balance and means we're more likely to have cairney and (the tireless!!) evans in the middle of the park.
keep up the good attitude alex.

Great stuff to hear, a bloke that not only wants to be at the club but one who really wants to put in and have a decent crack for the shirt. Makes a nice change after some (most) of the deadwood we picked up in the Kean era who purely only came for the pay check.

I can't see Bowyer dropping his captain but, in my opinion, Kilgallon is more composed than Hanley and would be a better choice to partner Baptiste in the centre. It won't happen, of course, unless, god forbid, Hanley picks up a suspension or an injury. Baptiste is already looking like our best centre-half and Hanley is more prone to making mistakes than Kilgallon.

Lowe has been okay at right-back but it's not his natural position. Someone like Keane, back in on loan, would definitely be preferential (although there is plenty of interest in him from other clubs.) However, you do fear that Bowyer would put Lowe back in midfield, alongside Evans, thus pushing Cairney out wide and leaving Marshall and King on the bench. Not an ideal scenario in most fans' opinion, at least that's the impression I get.

agreed on the kilgallon front. if it were me, it would be baptiste and kilgallon. but as you say, it would be a brave man to drop grant.
the simple fact is, all three of them are going to get plenty of games this season, given that we are so short of cover.
keane would definitely be welcomed back and would go straight into the side on the right, but i would say lowe is our second best option there at the moment. he balances the side well i think, as he can get up and down the flank, but provides remarkably good cover when sides break on us. i still think he gets a raw deal in the middle. cairney/evans is clearly the best option though. if marshall remains injury-free, i think it is good for him, obviously, but also good for us because it means cairney has to play inside. evans has the other central role nailed on for me. a superb player in his own right.

It's certainly a headache - albeit a good one - for Gary Bowyer. Move Baptiste to right-back and he'll weaken central defence. Keep Baptiste where he is and he'll either have to drop his captain or weaken the defence by benching Kilgallon. Similarly, play Lowe at right-back and he has to drop a natural defender. Play Lowe in midfield and he has to either drop Evans - easily the better player - or shift Cairney out wide, thus losing pace and/or creativity on the wing by omitting King or Marshall from the starting XI. Also, as already mentioned, central defence is weakened as Baptiste is moved to the right side. Similar headaches will arise once Spurr and Brown are fully fit.

On the plus side, it appears our squad isn't as weak as some people fear. One centre-half-****-full
-back will probably suffice, and should push come to shove we can always give O'Connell the chance he clearly deserves.

Just out of curiosity, would we actually be able to sign him next season if we are under a transfer embargo? Someone mentioned something on another thread about being allowed to extend contracts but Baptiste will still have another year to run on his Bolton contract so surely it'd still count as a transfer? Any clarification would be most appreciated.

Keep it as it is after Saturdays result as we seem to have the right balance at the moment. Baptiste is much better at Centre half than right back and is stronger than Killi. Therefore bench Killi and let him wait his turn. Putting him back in now will only disturb the formation as you have just described and ultimately weaken our attacking prowess.

I'm not sure on that one, it would depend on the terms of the transfer embargo, if there is one.

I made the point because we all know we are desperately short of decent defensive cover, there isn't a queue of defenders to pick from because most clubs are in a similar position to us.

In the few games he has played for us, I have seen three of them, he has been excellent and my concern is that Bolton still hold his registration and we could be playing him into form for them.

Again I don't know the terms of the loan but there are usually escape clauses on both sides, he is basically burning his bridges in this article.
