Ruben Rochina would reportedly be happy to stay and fight for his place at Blackburn as long as he is given a fair chance to play.
The 20-year-old former Barcelona B striker, who was one of Rovers boss Steve Kean's first signings when he was snapped up for around £500,000 in January 2011, has struggled for first-team action in the second half of this season.
Rochina has not started since Rovers' shock 3-2 win at Manchester United on New Year's Eve and was left out of the squad for the past two matches.
Kean confirmed at the end of last week that Rochina, along with fellow fringe man Simon Vukcevic, is still a big part of his plans for the future and he had no intentions of offloading him in the summer.
And, the Lancashire Telegraph has now reported that sources close to Rochina claim, while he is very frustrated at not been a regular in the Rovers' side this season, he has spoken to Kean and is willing to stay put as long as the current situation does not continue.
There are several clubs in Spain, Italy and Germany thought to be monitoring Rochina's progress and could make a swoop should the player look to leave, but Rovers would probably struggle to recoup the money they paid out to Barcelona for his signature.
