Tony Mowbray has been keen to add to his defensive options before the transfer window closes as he looks to lead Blackburn to the Premier League.


Keen to strengthen their squad, the Riversiders identified out-of-favour Leeds star Douglas as an ideal candidate to strengthen their options at full-back.



And now, Blackburn have announced the signing of the 31-year-old Scot from the Elland Road outfit on loan until the end of the season.


Douglas completed his medical with the Championship club on Thursday and proceeded to put pen to paper on a season-long loan contract.



Having helped both Leeds and Wolves to earn promotion, the left-back will be hoping to do the same with Blackburn.


Douglas is expected to be one of the three players to come in through the door at Blackburn before the window closes this evening.



Mowbray’s side are claimed to have linked up a permanent transfer for Middlesbrough goalkeeper Aynsley Pears as well as another player on loan.


Douglas is into the final year of his deal at Leeds and as such his exit is effectively permanent.
