Blackburn Rovers sign Tom Cairney and Rudy Gestede

Blackburn have signed Hull midfielder Tom Cairney and Cardiff striker Rudy Gestede for undisclosed fees on three-and-a-half-year deals.

Cairney, 22, spent the first half of the season on loan at the Championship side, making 24 appearances.

Gestede, 25, joined Rovers in November and scored his first goal for the club in the 2-1 win over Leeds on Wednesday.

"I feel I've played well this season, but I still think there's more to come," Cairney told the club website.
