Blackburn Rovers sign Tom Cairney and Rudy Gestede on permanent transfers
BLACKBURN Rovers have completed the double signing of loan stars Tom Cairney and Rudy Gestede for undisclosed fees.
In what is a massive boost for Rovers supporters Gestede and, in particular, Cairney have penned permanent deals after their loan spells from Cardiff City and Hull City respectively ran out after yesterday’s excellent 2-1 victory at Leeds United in the Championship.
Cairney set-up both of Rovers’ goals in their first win at Elland Road since April 2003.
It was the classy 22-year-old midfielder’s 24th appearance for Gary Bowyer’s side.
During his initial six-month loan from Hull Cairney scored two goals and established himself as a firm fans’ favourite.
Gestede joined Rovers on an emergency loan from Cardiff in November.
The powerful 25-year-old striker has made six appearances for Rovers and netted his first goal for the club in the victory over Leeds.
Both Gestede and Cairney have signed three-and-a-half year contracts, tying them to the club until the summer of 2017.
