Sam Gallagher joins Blackburn from Southampton
Last Updated: 13/07/19 6:07pm
Blackburn have completed the signing of striker Sam Gallagher from Southampton on a four-year deal.
Sky Sports News revealed last week that Blackburn were expected to make a formal bid for the striker, and the 23-year-old has now made a permanent move to Ewood Park, where he scored 12 goals during a season-long loan three years ago.
"It's amazing to be back and it's something that I've wanted to happen ever since I left the club after my loan spell," Gallagher said.
"For the move to finally happen feels great. The whole feeling of the club, even walking around the training ground this morning, it's almost as if I never left really.
"Even the drive into the training ground brought back so many good memories for me, but hopefully there will be better ones to come."
Gallagher becomes manager Tony Mowbray's third summer signing, following on from the captures of experienced midfield pair Stewart Downing and Bradley Johnson.
