Man Utd defender Keane moves to Blackburn

ChampionshipBlackburn Rovers have signed centre-back Michael Keane on loan from Manchester United for the rest of the season. Keane could make his debut in Sunday's Lancashire derby against Burnley.

"I've got a bit of experience now in the Championship and I know what it takes to play well in these games," the 21-year-old told the club website.

"I'm looking to play well on Sunday and hit the ground running and keep that form up.

"I'm sure it will be a tough game but I'm confident we can get a result.

"I'm really looking forward to it. I hope it's my debut and I'll make sure I'm ready to do well."

"He is highly sought-after," said Rovers boss Gary Bowyer.

"He has had a good education with Manchester United and he has got experience already in the Championship with his time on loan at two top clubs."
