Campbell heads to the Den

Campbell heads to the Den

Rovers have been busy beavers this afternoon.

With the club looking to decrease the wage bill the news of another departure on substantial wages will come as that of the pleasant variety, with DJ Campbell moving to Millwall on loan for the remainder of the campaign.

Campbell has taken the opportunity to link up with former manager Ian Holloway, who managed DJ when he was at Blackpool, and manager Gary Bowyer has confirmed that the club have consented due to a lack of first team opportunities for the player.

'With his ankle injury in pre-season and the arrival of Rudy Gestede, DJ has found his chances limited and at this stage of his career he needs to be playing games,' Bowyer told the official website.

'The attraction of Millwall for DJ is that he can go back to London, where his family are from and he'll be reunited with Ian Holloway. The pair have a lot of time for each other.

'Both parties felt that it was the right move and it will be good for him to get some games under his belt.'

Under the terms of his loan, Campbell cannot face his parent club when the sides meet in the league in March.

Honestly can't see a downside to this, we've had a (temporary) lucky escape.

Blackburn Confirm Caddis Arrival

Caddis, who left Bury at the end of a short deal, was given his chance due to his previous with Blackburn boss Mowbray at Celtic. But the ex-Birmingham full back has secured a deal.

Samuel Signing Sealed

Blackburn have signed Reading forward Dominic Samuel, who once worked with Mowbray at Coventry - also loaned to Colchester, Dagenham and Gillingham, ending last season at Ipswich.

Just Saying, But What If....

Blackburn will do well under the boss. However, for arguments sake, if Rovers didn't secure an instant Championship return what would happen to Mowbray?

Caddis At The Double

Caddis has now spent the past three weeks with Blackburn, joining the club in Austria last week, and Mowbray, his boss at Celtic earlier in his career, is close to making his decision.
