Blackburn Rovers have completed the signing of promising young striker Anton Forrester.

The 18-year-old arrives from Everton on a free transfer, signing a two-and-a-half-year deal through to June 2015.

The Liverpool-born forward joined Everton at the age of nine and progressed through the junior ranks at Goodison Park.

A regular goalscorer at youth level, Forrester continued through their Academy to the fringes of the Everton reserve team.

Forrester linked up with Rovers at the turn of the year and after impressing on trial, put pen-to-paper on a deal to become the club's latest arrival.
