BLACK­BURN’S new sign­ing Luke Var­ney says he is glad to have es­caped from the tur­moil sur­round­ing his for­mer club Leeds.

The ex-Charl­ton, Sh­effield Wed­nes­day, Black­pool and Potsmouth striker has signed for Gary Bowyer’s side on loan and con­firmed a lack of game time at El­land Road made him de­ter­mined to move on.

“Once it was clear that I might not get a con­tract next year at Leeds, they stopped play­ing me,” said Var­ney, who has made more than 300 league ap­pear­ances since start­ing at Crewe in 2003.

“It’s not anger but there’s a lot in­side that I need to get out and I’m hop­ing to do that on the pitch for Black­burn.”
