Southampton’s Sam Gallagher has been mentioned in connection with a loan move to Blackburn in the past few days, this deal should be confirmed anytime now by Rovers it would appear.

With Gallagher’s social media account Instagram (apparently) followed by Blackburn Rovers today this has all but confirmed his arrival at Ewood Park is done, otherwise why would this happen!

Gallagher, who has made 20 first-team appearances for Southampton, spent a loan spell with MK Dons last season in the Championship with him on for a season-long loan with Blackburn.

Among those reporting this deal being close to completion in the past 24-hours or so are the Lancashire Telegraph and Sky Sports. As said that Instagram giveaway should mean the 20-year-old will have his arrival confirmed well in time for the weekend as Owen Coyle adds another attacking option to the Blackburn squad.
