Blackburn agree Bunn fee

Blackburn have agreed an undisclosed fee with Coca-Cola League One side Northampton for goalkeeper Mark Bunn.

The 23-year-old is poised to link up with new Rovers manager Paul Ince at Ewood Park subject to passing a medical over the weekend.

Bunn has made over 100 appearances for the Cobblers since making his debut in August 2005, and is rated one of the best goalkeepers in the lower leagues.

He is expected to vie with Jason Brown to become the regular understudy to Paul Robinson at Blackburn.
