Blackburn Rovers winger Aaron Doran has joined Inverness Caledonian Thistle on loan for the rest of the season.

The 19-year-old made three appearances as a substitute for Blackburn in the 2008/09 season but has not featured for the Ewood Park club since.

Doran, a Republic of Ireland youth international, has previously been on loan at MK Dons and Leyton Orient.

Inverness manager Terry Butcher told BBC Scotland: "He is a player we have been tracking for some time."

Doran was on the bench for Wednesday's Scottish Premier League game against Aberdeen.

There have been no increased offers for Adam Rooney, but there is plenty of time

"He just travelled up yesterday so does not know how we play," explained Butcher.

The Caley Thistle manager thought that some other signing targets could emerge before the closure of the transfer window.

"Players who were not available at the start of the window are becoming available," he said.

Meanwhile, Butcher was hopeful that top scorer Adam Rooney, the subject of a failed bid from Russian club Kuban Krasnodar, would remain at Caledonian Stadium beyond the end of January.

"All the players love him as a player and we can see an end to it on Monday night," he said.

"There have been no increased offers, but there is plenty of time and the last few days of the window are always the busiest."
