Bordeaux striker Anthony Modeste has joined Blackburn on loan until the end of the season.

Bordeaux announced on its website that the loan deal for Modeste does not include an option to buy him.

The 23-year-old Modeste has scored 13 league goals in 52 games for Bordeaux.

Blackburn is fighting to stave relegation in the English Premier League, and is without top scorer Ayegbeni Yakubu for three games after he was shown a straight red card last weekend.
