Rovers' Markanday completes Aberdeen loan move

Aberdeen have completed the signing of Blackburn Rovers forward Dilan Markanday on loan for the rest of the season.

Rushhoursport revealed Aberdeen had made a breakthrough in negotiations on Monday with the player travelling up to Scotland to undergo a medical just before the window closed

Markanday is a Tottenham academy graduate, who resisted a number of offers - including at least one from Scotland - when he left north London to join Rovers in the January 2022 transfer window.

The 21-year-old has scored two goals in six appearances for Rovers this season, but has been unable to find regular game-time at Ewood Park under Jon Dahl Tomasson.

Markanday spent more than a decade at Spurs and became the first South Asian heritage player in Tottenham's history when he entered the pitch as a second-half substitute in a Europa Conference League game away at Vitesse.
