Roque Santa Cruz Returns to Blackburn Rovers on Loan from Manchester City

Blackburn Rovers signed former striker Roque Santa Cruz on loan from Manchester City until the end of the season, the Premier League club said on its website.

Santa Cruz, 29, has scored just four goals in 24 games since joining City from Blackburn in June 2009. The Paraguayan had 29 goals in two seasons with Rovers.

Santa Cruz will be included in the Blackburn squad for tomorrow’s league match at Chelsea, the club said.
