Marcus Antonsson wants to secure promotion with Rovers before entertaining conversations about his future.

But the Leeds United loanee admits he’s ‘enjoying every single minute’ of his time at Ewood Park as Rovers chase the League One title.

Antonsson has started the last two games after a spell on the fringes and will hope to make the cut when Tony Mowbray names his side for tomorrow’s visit of Southend United.

The 26-year-old still has a year left to run on his deal with his parent club but was surplus to requirements under former Whites boss Thomas Christiansen.

After 30 games and eight goals for Rovers, Antonsson wants to help see Rovers over the line in their remaining seven games before assessing his options.

Of his future, he told the Lancashire Telegraph: “I want to focus on the last seven games here to win promotion with Blackburn and after that I can focus on what is going to happen next year.

“It’s been very good for me.

“Playing games in a team that’s winning games most weeks is unbelievable and I’m happy so far.

“It’s enjoyable playing in this team, I’m enjoying every single minute and it’s so nice to be up there top of the league, pushing for promotion.

“But there are seven games to go and we really need to push in every game.”

Antonsson marked a 50th appearance in English football during Rovers’ win over Bradford City having made the move from Kalmar in his native Sweden last summer.

Wherever he is playing his football next season, the forward is sure in which country he wants it to be.

He added: “To play football in England is an honour and for me that’s the place to be as a footballer.

“It’s perfect, the passion from the fans and the quality in the games.

“I love playing in England and hopefully I can do that for many years.”

Much of his football for Rovers has come in a left-sided attacking role, one he occupied in the wins over Bradford and MK Dons over the Easter period.

He enjoyed a purple patch in November, netting five times in five games, but his form was derailed by an ankle injury.

But the Swede is happy to see the team doing well.

“The only thing that matters is to put a good shift in for the team,” he added.

“Normally I’m a goalscorer and I want to score goals to help the team but I’m a part of a team who works really hard and are good together.

“Hopefully I can score some more goals as well.

“I came as a centre forward and that’s where I’ve been playing the last 10 years.

“I’ve had a new role out wide and as long as you’re playing games and it suits me, I can come inside and score goals and create as well.

“You need to be open for new opportunities and to try new things to grow and be better and I have learned things here. Even if you play up front you end up in wide positions and I can learn a lot from this season.”
