Blackburn agree a fee for Dundee United forward David Goodwillie who has been linked with Rangers.

Blackburn Rovers have agreed a fee with Dundee United for striker David Goodwillie.

United assistant manager Peter Houston told BBC Radio Scotland that the 22-year-old, who is also being targeted by Rangers, is currently in talks with Steve Kean’s side.

"David Goodwillie is likely to go if they can agree terms, because the chairman is happy with the offer that Blackburn's made," he said.

"I think Rangers have made an improved offer, but he hasn't said to me whether he is happy with that or not. It is between the two clubs just now and I believe the two bids are very similar, with Blackburn offering more in add-ons."

Goodwillie scored 19 goals for Dundee last season and has one Scottish cap to his name after making his debut in a friendly against the Faroe Islands in November.

Kean has been on the hunt for a striker for some time and has offered another contract to free agent Benjani who left the club after rejecting Rovers’ first offer.
