Blackburn adds Modeste on loan from Bordeaux

Blackburn signed striker Anthony Modeste on loan from French side Bordeaux on Thursday for the rest of the Premiership season.

Modeste, 23, has 13 goals in 52 Ligue 1 appearances for Bordeaux, but has just three goals in 15 appearances (four starts) this season.

Blackburn is 17th in the standings, just one place above the relegation zone, ahead of Saturday's trip to Everton.
