rovers.co.uk wrote:Rovers have made their first signing of the January transfer window with the capture of forward Lucas Joao from Sheffield Wednesday.
The 23-year-old joins on loan until the end of the 2016-17 season.
In his first season at Hillsborough, Joao scored eight goals in 48 appearances, including a late leveller at Ewood Park, as the Owls narrowly missed out on promotion, losing to Hull City in the play-off final.
On the international stage, Joao has two caps for Portugal, having also featured at Under-20, Under-21 and Under-23 level.
The forward has been signed in time for Wednesday night's Championship match with Leeds United at Ewood Park, however he is ineligible to play for Rovers in the fifth round of the FA Cup, having already featured for Sheffield Wednesday in the competition.
I thought the days of signing young Portuguese players were behind us :paranoid:

I don't know why we bought him in the first place when we could have got someone like Joao on loan.
