Teenage non-league attacker David Carson will join Blackburn Rovers’ youth set-up in the summer.

The 18-year-old, who was previously on the books of Newcastle United and Sunderland, has been playing for Ashington in the North East but impressed while on trial at Ewood Park.

Meanwhile, former Rovers defender Lucas Neill, who was an unused sub for Watford in Tuesday night’s draw with Gary Bowyer’s side, has joined Doncaster on a one-month loan deal.
