Ian Poveda makes Blackburn Rovers loan move

Winger makes temporary switch.

Leeds United winger Ian Poveda has joined Sky Bet Championship side Blackburn Rovers on loan until the end of the season.

Poveda has made 20 appearances for the Whites since joining from Manchester City in January 2020 and will now look to get further game time with Tony Mowbray’s side.

He could make his Blackburn debut on Saturday when Rovers take on Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.

On the move, Leeds United director of football Victor Orta said: “We feel Ian can make an impact here in the future and we’ve been very impressed with how Blackburn have developed players such as Harvey Elliott at Liverpool.

“We hope Ian can get some game time and come back to us next season ready to fight.”

We wish Ian good luck during his time at Ewood Park.
