Harry Chapman says the ball is in Rovers' court when it comes to his long-term future.

Chapman is currently catching the eye on loan at League One side Shrewsbury Town where he has scored six goals in 14 League One appearances.

Those have come since signing on loan in January, with the 23-year-old becoming a firm hit with the Shrews who would be keen to make it a permanent stay.

Chapman, signed from Middlesbrough in January 2019, is into the final months of his Ewood Park deal, but has revealed there is a 12-month option in Rovers' favour.

Rovers are expected to trigger that to keep him under contract to 2022 when he will be assessed again in pre-season upon his return.

In the meantime he's looking to continue enjoying his football, playing regularly in the third tier for Shrewsbury, with Chapman's signing coinciding with an upturn in form.

Lancashire Telegraph:

“We just have to see what the future brings,” Chapman told the Shropshire Star.

“The ball is openly in Blackburn’s court, they have an option year on me.

“If they decide to take that up then I’m a Blackburn player again, we’ll just have to see what next season brings.

“Definitely, I’m very happy with life down here, the way things have gone.

“But it’s ultimately in Blackburn’s court, my future.”

Chapman is yet to start in the Championship for Rovers since re-joining the club in 2019, after his loan spell in the League One promotion campaign of 2017/18 was cut short because of injury.

He has made 12 substitute appearances, including five this season, but has struggled to hold down a place in the squad, largely turning out for Billy Barr's Under-23s side.

And Chapman, part of three squads to have been promoted out of League One already, says regular game-time is his sole aim wherever he finds himself playing next season.

He added: “My main priority is to play football, no matter where it is.

“They have the option on me, if they want to take it up then they do and if they don’t then I feel like I’m doing all I can to make sure I’m still in a job next year.

“That’s where it is, this is my job, passion, what I love to do, I’m doing all I can to make sure I stay there.”
