The 21-year-old was loaned to Blackburn last summer from Brighton and Hove Albion and he has become a fan favourite at Ewood Park. Van Hecke has made 31 appearances for the club, scoring once.

The former Heerenveen and NAC Breda centre-back was voted as Blackburn Rovers player of the year on Saturday, capping a positive campaign.

The youngster will now be hoping that his performances have convinced Brighton to give him a chance in the Premier League next season.
