Transfer 1- Who is David Goodwillie
After a long, drawn out window, Blackburn Rovers have made their first official and announced signing, David Goodwillie
Name- David Goodwillie
D.O.B- 28 March, 1989
Height- 5ft 9, or 1.75m
Birth- Stirling, Scotland
David joined Dundee United at the tender age of 14 years after a successful trial. His first professional contract was signed in 2005 with a end of year clash at the Ibrox his debut fixture.
A slow start to David's career at Dundee saw him loaned out to Raith Rovers for the 2007-8 season. A handful of goals and plenty of game time ensured Goodwillie returned to Dundee with vital experience under his belt.
2010-11 is the season David's potential started to sign, and scouts headed towards Dundee to watch the young Scottish lad. 16 goals in 37 league appearances, included a late winner against Rangers earned David the 2010-11 Scottish Young Player of the year award, as well as his maiden International Cap.
David opted to join Blackburn ahead of the 2011-12 campaign, despite strong interest from Rangers, an undiscolsed fee rumoured to be 2 million Pounds upfront, 800k in incentives.
The Young Scottish lad is not without controversy. 2 incidents at nightclubs in 2008 and 2009 saw him pick up minor fines. With Venky's strong attitude which has seen Diouf on the outer, Goodwillie will need to clean up his act
