Kean: Goodwillie is 'a natural finisher'

Steve Kean, the Blackburn Rovers manager, has described new signing David Goodwillie as a "great addition" and believes the Scotland international will offer something different to his squad.

Goodwillie joined Blackburn on a four-year contract from Dundee United earlier this week for a fee believed to have been an initial £2m and Kean said: "He's an exciting young player and I think it was time for him to move from Scotland. He's a player that scores all types of goals. I think he'll give us a different dimension. He's bubbly, he's a natural finisher and I think he'll be a great addition."
