According to sportinglife Blackburn have just signed him for 3 million.
In fact is says "more than £3million" so maybe it's 10 or 20 or even more?
Great business for Newcastle and if Brackburn are willing to pay so much for him it looks like they want him as a starter.
Hope it all works out well; a season in the Championship playing regularly and scoring goals would do him the world of good.
Lets see if he can deliver.
