Blackburn have blocked Carlisle's attempts to sign Joe Garner permanently.
Blackburn have blocked Carlisle's attempts to make Joe Garner's loan move into a permanent deal.
Garner joined Carlisle on loan in January and has made a big impression on boss Neil McDonald.
Rovers' Academy graduate has scored three goals in 10 appearances for the League One promotion hopefuls.
McDonald revealed he enquired about a permanent transfer for Garner but was knocked back by counterpart Mark Hughes.
"I enquired but it has come back from Blackburn that they do not want to sell Joe at the minute," said McDonald.
"He has only just signed a new contract there and they want to keep hold of him while he is developing."
