Bordeaux striker Anthony Modeste is on his way to Blackburn Rovers.

The Daily Mail says Rovers are close to finalising a loan deal for Modeste.

The former France U21 international was left on the bench for Saturday's 2-1 victory over Valenciennes as a Blackburn contingent attended the game.

Bordeaux are happy to let Modeste, 23, go, with a possibility the move could be made permanent in the summer.
