Villanueva hoping to stay

Published Add your comment

Chile midfielder Carlos Villanueva has spoken of his wish to secure a long-term contract at Blackburn.

The 23-year-old's loan spell from Audax Italiano is due to finish at the end of the season.

Villanueva has struggled to establish himself at Ewood Park but he said: "I want to stay as I feel as though I am learning every day. It is very different in England from Chile. The game is quicker and stronger. It takes time to adjust and I feel I would improve next season."

He added: "When I arrived in Blackburn I got chickenpox and could not train for three weeks. Now things are better.

"This is one of the best leagues in the world and I am enjoying being part of it.

"While I would like to be involved in more games, it is okay. I am happy at Blackburn."

Villanueva added: "I do not know anything about my future but I am not worried about that.

"My focus is on the remaining games and trying to help Blackburn if I get the chance. I will always give my best."
