Manager Gary Bowyer has spoken of his delight at signing Luke Varney from Leeds United.
The experienced forward joins Rovers on loan until May 11th, with the club having the option of making the move a permanent one.
Rovers have been after Varney for some time, with the boss pleased to have secured his services.
"He is a great addition to the squad and a great lad," said Bowyer. "He has been very keen to join us.
"He works really hard, he is a great team player and gives us further options in our attacking areas.
"He is an agressive forward who will give defenders a real handful."
The deal has been done in time for Varney to be included in the squad for this afternoon's match at the Riverside Stadium against Middlesbrough.
