13th July 2019, 20:33 by Simon Barlow

Blackburn Rovers have sealed the permanent signing of ex-loan striker Sam Gallagher from Southampton on a four-year contract.

The 23-year-old, who scored 12 goals during a season-long loan spell with Rovers three years ago, has now made a permanent move to Ewood Park.

"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."
