BLACKBURN Rovers have signed Sunderland striker Danny Graham on loan until the end of the season.

The 30-year-old, who is out of contract in the summer, becomes Rovers boss Paul Lambert’s third acquisition of the January transfer window, after Elliott Bennett and Simeon Jackson, and he is expected to go straight into the squad for Saturday’s Championship clash at Charlton Athletic.


Graham, who topped the Championship scoring charts with Watford in 2010-11, told the club’s official website: “It’s been a mad 24 hours, I was training with Sunderland yesterday morning and then I came down here last night to get things sorted, so I’m delighted to get it done.

"I’m looking forward to the first game against Charlton and hopefully we can get off to a flying start.”
