Blackburn Rovers have clinched the loan signing of Bordeaux striker Anthony Modeste.

Blackburn Rovers have clinched the loan signing of Bordeaux striker Anthony Modeste.

The highly-rated 23-year-old arrives at Ewood Park on loan and his French employers have emphasised there is no option to buy.

Bordeaux paid Nice €3.5million for Modeste in August 2010, and although he has failed to make a huge impact at the Parc Lescure they still see a future for him at the club.

Blackburn have now moved to finalise a deal and they are hoping the striker will receive international clearance in time to feature in Saturday's clash against Everton.
