Kean strikes season loan for Modeste

Blackburn have completed the loan signing of Anthony Modeste from Bordeaux.

The 23-year-old forward, who has represented France at U21 level, has joined Rovers until the end of the season.

Rovers are still waiting for international clearance to enable Modeste to be considered for tomorrow's Premier League match at Everton.

Modeste joined Bordeaux from Nice in the summer of 2010 and struck 10 goals in 37 Ligue 1 games in the 2010-11 campaign.

"He's an attacking player who likes to play on the shoulder of central defenders," Rovers boss Steve Kean said. "He's got pace, he's got power, and he is technically very good."
