Kean delight at Goodwillie capture

Published Add your comment

Blackburn boss Steve Kean has described new signing David Goodwillie as a "great addition" and believes the Scotland international will offer something different to his squad.

Goodwillie joined Blackburn on a four-year contract from Dundee United earlier this week for a fee believed to have been an initial £2million .

Kean, whose side finished in 15th spot in the Barclays Premier League last season, is thrilled with the capture of 22-year-old, saying on the club's official website, "He's an exciting young player and I think it was time for him to move from Scotland, he was Young Player of the Year up there, scoring 18 goals which is something we can certainly do with."

He added: "He's a player that scores all types of goals, headers, left-foot, right-foot, tap-ins, which are always the best for the strikers to score.

"I think he'll give us a different dimension. He's bubbly, he's a natural finisher and I think he'll be a great addition to the already up and coming young ones."

Goodwillie could make his Rovers debut in Saturday's friendly against Kilmarnock after receiving international clearance.
