The flying Dutchman netted the winner for the Swans in the derby clash at Cardiff on Sunday but will return to Teesside when his loan spell ends after Wednesday night's clash with Bristol City.

While Emnes was frozen out under former manager Gordon Strachan, new Boro boss Tony Mowbray has promised a clean slate and is keen to cast his eye closely over the 22-year-old.

But should he not make the grade, Emnes, a £3.2million signing from Sparta Rotterdam in 2008, would be happy to return to the Liberty Stadium.

He said: "The (Swansea) fans and everyone will remember the goal because it's a big goal in a big derby. I will remember it too. It's always nice to be the match-winner in a big game.

Hard games

"Derbies are always hard games and it's nice to make the people of Swansea feel happy. Things are going well for me here. I've settled down in the team and got some goals, but I have a contract at Middlesbrough so I have to go back.

"They have a different manager now so I have to see what happens and if I get the chance to play games. If I don't I will try to go out on loan again, and coming back to Swansea would be nice."

Mowbray is looking forward to seeing the Dutchman at close quarters, telling the Evening Gazette: "Emnes will be returning and it will give me the chance to have a look at him. I'll assess him over the next week or two.

"He's done well at Swansea so I have to see him and, as far as the team is concerned, the more players we have to choose from the better."
