Blackburn Rovers have completed the signing of young striker Anton Forrester.

The 18-year-old has signed from Everton on a free transfer, signing a two-and-a-half-year deal through to June 2015.

The Liverpool-born forward joined Everton at the age of nine and progressed through the junior ranks at Goodison Park.

Forrester linked up with Rovers at the turn of the year and after impressing on trial, put pen-to-paper on a permanent deal.
