Kazim-Richards: Makes loan move to Blackburn

The Turkish international joins the club with a view to a permanent deal and becomes Rovers' eighth signing of a busy summer for manager Steve Kean.

The 25-year-old joined Turkish giants Fenerbahce in June 2007 but made the move to bitter local rivals Galatasaray in January 2011.

Richards was on trial with Blackburn since the pre-season trip to Holland and will now feature in Rovers' final friendly against Cork City this weekend.
