Tonight the Rovers website have confirmed what we had been hoping to hear for a while now, Franco Di Santo is joining Blackburn Rovers on loan. We maybe weren’t expecting it to be just until January, but that is a sign maybe of how much Chelsea rate him, coupled with the fact that for the second half of the season, they might need more cover than for the first half.
Great news though and I am sure we will have the option to extend the loan until the end of the season if it works out for all parties.

20-year-old Di Santo started his career in his home country of Argentina playing for his local side Godoy Cruz, he went on to play at Audax Italiano in Chile, before moving to Chelsea where he learnt his trade in the reserves. This pre-season he impressed in Chelsea’s warmup game against Club America in the United States, scoring one and setting up another. He should now slot into the Rovers side and be available to make his Blackburn debut against Hibernian on Wednesday night at Ewood.
Some other random news I am hearing, Nathan Ellington is supposed to be on trial at the club, where did he come from? Haven’t heard anything of him in a while. Kalinic deal just hinges on the player getting a work permit, his club Hadjuk Split are already posting the deal on their website, I won’t commit to this one though until we hear from the club, after Ghilas went wrong.
But we could be looking good up front now, at least until January, need a midfielder now then.
