King joins Berg at Blackburn

Manchester United forward Joshua King will spend the rest of 2012 with Blackburn Rovers following the completion of his loan move from Old Trafford.

Former Reds defender Henning Berg, recently appointed as Blackburn boss, has snapped up his fellow Norwegian as he bids to steer Rovers back into the top flight. King will no doubt be in confident mood for the weeks ahead, having made his second senior appearance for the Reds in midweek - albeit as a late substitute in the Champions League defeat to Galatasaray.

The 20 year-old could make his Blackburn debut in Saturday's home match against Millwall. Rovers are currently sixth in the Championship after winning 4-1 away at Peterborough, the side managed by Sir Alex Ferguson's son Darren.
