Gomez Not Considering Permanent Move Yet

Jordi Gomez says it's too soon to consider a permanent move to Blackburn Rovers.

Jordi Gomez has had an excellent start to his loan spell at Championship side Blackburn Rovers. He has already scored three goals in just five games for Paul Lambert's side, including a last minute free kick winner that you can watch at the bottom of the article.

Although he has quickly made himself a fan favourite at Ewood Park, he says it's too soon to consider a move away from Sunderland;

I'm enjoying my time here. My first half of the season at Sunderland wasn't that good in terms of playing, but I'm playing now and I'm happy.

You want to play but at the same time it's not just for the sake of playing. I want to give something to a team and help a team get results. I don't just want to play I want to add something as well.

At the moment I'm not thinking about the summer, I'm just focused on my time here and helping the team get the results.

When the moment is right we'll think about the summer.

Gomez will have one year remaining on his Sunderland deal when his loan with Blackburn expires and Lambert would like to sign the Spaniard but admits the money situation at Blackburn could make that difficult;

We have to leave it at the minute because of the money situation. This club has some big calls this summer in the way it wants to go. I'm pretty sure the owners will have a say on that.

The way he's playing if we could keep him it would be a no-brainer to try and get him. Those types of players are hard to find, number 10s who are really creative. He will try things that others won't try.

Since he came in he's been fantastic. You can see how generally gifted he is. He makes the game look easy, the ball seems to stick to him, he moves it well, he's a really intelligent footballer.

Although Sunderland are likely to be happy to see Gomez leave the club permanently in the summer, I'd hope that opinion would change if the worst happens and the club are relegated from the Premier League. Gomez struggled at times in the Premier League but there is no doubt that he is too good for the Championship and he could still be an asset for the team should we drop down a division.
