Rovers sign Chelsea youngster Palmer on loan

Blackburn Rovers have signed Kasey Palmer on a season-long loan from Chelsea.

A number of other Championship clubs, including Norwich, expressed an interest in the 21-year-old midfielder.

Rovers have clinched a deal to sign him for the coming season and it will be his fourth spell out on loan.

Palmer, who has not made a first-team appearance for the Blues, has twice been on loan at Huddersfield, helping them win promotion and later featuring for the Yorkshire club in the Premier League.

He ended last season back in the Championship, on loan at Derby.
