The 22-year-old scored three goals in a total of 17 appearances for Blackburn.

Chelsea midfielder Kasey Palmer has joined Bristol City for the rest of the season after his loan spell at Blackburn was cut short.

Palmer, 22, had been scheduled to stay at Blackburn for the 2018/19 campaign when he arrived in July, but could feature in City's home league game against Bolton on Saturday.

"I'm delighted we have been able to sign Kasey Palmer on loan from Chelsea until the end of the season and it's great to get this done so early in the window," City boss Lee Johnson told the club's official website.

"Kasey is a very good player who can play through the middle and out wide. He can create openings as well as score goals and I'm excited about what he can bring to our squad."

Palmer scored three goals in a total of 17 appearances for Blackburn and has also had loan spells at Huddersfield (twice) and Derby.

He has yet to make his senior debut for Chelsea, but helped Huddersfield win promotion to the Premier League in 2017 and made four top-flight appearances for the club last season.

Blackburn confirmed on their official website that Palmer had been "recalled from his loan spell" at Ewood Park by Chelsea.
