Bordeaux loan Modeste to Blackburn

19 January 2012 11:46

French striker Anthony Modeste has been loaned by Bordeaux to struggling English Premier League side Blackburn Rovers with an option to buy, the French club confirmed on Thursday.

The 23-year-old youth international arrived in Bordeaux from Nice in 2010, following a loan spell at second division Angers, but has fallen out of favour this season, losing his first-team place.

He has scored just four goals in 15 games for the mid-table Ligue 1 side.
