Southampton striker Gallagher on brink of Blackburn move

Southampton striker Sam Gallagher is on the brink of signing for Blackburn Rovers.

Sky Sports says Gallagher is having a medical with Blackburn ahead of a move from Southampton.

Blackburn were expected to make a formal bid for the striker, but he is now undergoing a medical after a fee was agreed between the two clubs.

Tony Mowbray's side had been in talks with the Saints for two weeks - but despite interest from Wigan and Brentford the 23-year-old looks set to move to the North West.

Gallagher spent the 2016-17 season on loan at Ewood Park, scoring 11 goals, and was loaned to Birmingham the following campaign, top-scoring for the Blues in the league with six goals.
