Southampton striker Sam Gallagher is undergoing a medical ahead of his move to Championship side Blackburn Rovers.
According to Sky Sports, Gallagher is completing his medical before officially completing his transfer away from the south coast.
The report claims that the two clubs have already agreed a fee for Gallagher, with Sam Wallace of the Telegraph claiming that Blackburn are paying £5m for the St. Mary’s academy graduate.

Gallagher is returning to Blackburn after two years, having spent the 2016/17 campaign on loan to the club.
He scored 11 goals in 43 Championship appearances for Blackburn, before scoring six league goals on loan to Birmingham the following season.
Since breaking into the first-team set-up at Southampton, Gallagher has scored twice in 26 appearances – with one coming in the Premier League and one coming in the FA Cup, in 2014.
Players Southampton need to sell this summer
Lemina has made it clear that he wants to leave Southampton this summer and the club cannot afford to have a disruptive influence in the dressing room.
Having Forster at the club as the third choice goalkeeper is, quite simply, a waste of money for Southampton.
The Dutch midfielder spent last season on loan to Feyenoord and may be looking to return to his homeland permanently.
Southampton need to sign a new centre-back this summer and that will only push Hoedt further out of the door.
