Blackburn Rovers closing in on forward deal, move ‘expected’



Blackburn Rovers striker Anthony Stokes appears set to depart the club on loan in a bid to revitalise his stagnating career, according to a report in the Scottish Sun.

The Irish striker is reportedly heading to Polish title chasers Jagiellonia Bialystok on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 28-year old joined Blackburn from Celtic last summer but has only hit the back of the net three times for the club and doesn’t appear to have a future at Ewood Park.

Rovers boss Owen Coyle, then, seems set to let Stokes leave the club in a bid to find some form. Coyle has strikers Danny Graham, Marvin Emnes and Sam Gallagher on the books, paving the way for Stokes to depart.

He was touted for a return to former club Hibernian, for whom he notched two goals in their infamous Scottish Cup final win over Rangers, though a move back to Easter Road failed to materialise.

The Polish transfer window remains open until 28th February meaning the loan move is expected to be confirmed in the next few days.
