Ewood life exciting – Goodwillie

The 22-year-old, who won the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year

award last season, completed his move from Dundee United earlier

this week in a deal believed to be in the region £2million.

The highly-rated youngster was also the subject of intense interest

from Rangers but the SPL club could not agree a fee with United,

leaving Rovers in the clear to complete the signing of the striker

on a four-year deal. Goodwillie believes the future is bright not

just on a personal level but also for his new club under Indian

owners Venky’s. “I think this could be a really good season for

Blackburn,” Goodwillie told the club’s official website. “The new

owners are exciting and they want players and I’m looking forward

to playing under them. “I think it’s a massive stage to further my

career and there’s no better place to play than the Premier

League.” Goodwillie accepts though that it may take time for him to

adjust to the rigors of Premier League football. “I think [for] the

first few games it will be difficult for me to settle, it’s

probably a better standard [than the SPL],” he added. “I’m just

looking forward to the challenge. It’s exciting, it’s really

exciting.”
