Mitch Candlin: Blackburn Rovers loan Walsall striker with an option to buy
Championship side Blackburn Rovers have signed teenage Walsall striker Mitch Candlin on loan until January, with a view to a permanent move.
The 18-year-old has made nine appearances for the Saddlers but is yet to score his first professional goal.
Candlin said: "I can't wait to get playing and do as well as I can at a great club with a massive history."
Rovers have also reached a mutual agreement with Peter Whittingham to terminate the 33-year-old's contract.
