Kean delight at Goodwillie deal
Blackburn beat Rangers to the signing of the striker earlier this
week when Goodwillie agreed a four-year contract to join from
Dundee United for an initial £2million fee. Kean, whose side
finished in 15th spot in the Premier League last season, is
thrilled with the capture of the 22-year-old. “He’s an exciting
young player and I think it was time for him to move from Scotland,
he was Young Player of the Year up there, scoring 18 goals which is
something we can certainly do with,” Kean told the club’s official
website. “He’s a player that scores all types of goals, headers,
left-foot, right-foot, tap-ins, which are always the best for the
strikers to score. “I think he’ll give us a different dimension.
He’s bubbly, he’s a natural finisher and I think he’ll be a great
addition to the already up and coming young ones.” Goodwillie could
make his Rovers debut in Saturday’s friendly against Kilmarnock
after receiving international clearance.
