Teenage Blackburn forward Edinho Junior will join Conference South club Whitehawk on a month's loan from the start of the new campaign.

The Portuguese player was sent out to the Indian Premier League with Shillong Lajong last season.

Whitehawk boss Darren Freeman told the Brighton Argus: "I tried to get him towards the end of last season but there were a couple of clubs interested and I was just too late.

"He can play a lot higher and we are delighted that Blackburn have allowed us to take him for a month."

Edinho made his Portugal Under-19 debut against Norway in February but made just two starts for the Ewood Park outfit last season.
