Blackburn Rovers striker David Goodwillie will join Championship rivals Blackpool on loan until the end of the season, reports suggest.

The 24-year-old began his career at Dundee United where he scored 29 goals in 117 appearances before making the switch from Scottish football to the Premier League when he signed for Blackburn in 2011. 

Since then, the Scotland international has made 28 appearances for Rovers but spent most of the last two seasons on loan at Crystal Palace and back at Dundee United where he scored three goals in 19 appearances.

Goodwillie now joins Blackpool under caretaker manager Barry Ferguson where it is understood his progress will be monitored by parent club Blackburn to aid them in making a decision to keep him on beyond the summer.

Blackpool sacked manager Paul Ince earlier this week and are currently 14th in the Championship, eight points clear of danger heading into tomorrow's clash with Doncaster.
