Kean happy to hand Modeste Blackburn debut

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean is pleased to have Bordeaux loan signing Anthony Modeste on-board.

The 23-year-old made an appearance at Goodison Park as a late substitute, and Kean is confident he will prove to be a valuable addition.

The Rovers boss said: "We've been active, we've got Anthony in, initially until the end of the season. It was good to get him involved because he only trained with the lads for 20 minutes (on Friday) because we had to do his medical and do all his physical testing but he'll give us a different dimension.

"He's somebody that looks to run in behind, play on the shoulder of the centre-halves and now we've got all different types of strikers."
