Middlesbrough sign Jordan Rhodes from Blackburn

Middlesbrough have announced the signing of Scotland striker Jordan Rhodes from Blackburn Rovers for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal at the Riverside Stadium.

Rhodes joined Blackburn from Huddersfield for £8m in August 2012 and the fee is reported to surpass that figure at £9m.

Boro's aborted move for Rhodes was resurrected a day after the proposed transfer initially fell through.

Rhodes scored 87 goals in 148 appearances over three years at Huddersfield and netted 28 times in his first season in the Championship with Blackburn.

He scored 85 goals in 169 appearances for Rovers, 11 of them coming this season.
