Blackburn have signed striker Danny Graham on loan from Premier League side Sunderland until the end of the season.

Graham, 30, is the Championship side’s third signing in January along with

Simeon Jackson


Elliott Bennett.

He is expected to feature against Charlton on Saturday, but will be ineligible to play in their FA Cup fourth-round fixture with Oxford.

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

“I’ve been playing a bit at Sunderland in the last few weeks, so I’m coming here with games under my belt.”

Graham joined Sunderland from Swansea in 2013 and has had previous spells on loan with Middlesbrough, Hull and Wolves.

“The transfer embargo has been lifted, so they want to sign players and move the club forward,”

he told the Rovers website. 

“To get out of Sunderland and have a fresh challenge is superb for me, so I’m delighted to get it done.

“I can’t wait to get going and hopefully we can pull together and move up the table.”
