Question is, who is driving? If it is him, should he really be incriminating himself like that ;-0) ?

If he has travelled by car from Germany surely it would be a left hand drive so it appears that the driver took the picture.

Luca Toni drove him over. Marcus Masdison took the picture. Assombolonga was doing the coffee runs at the service stations 

And Tugay Kerimoglu showed him how to pick a pass (he does seem to have a strong resemblance in that regard!)

Can anyone qualify if he can be registered to play prior to January? If he comes that is. 

He'll be free to play as soon as he is fit and ready.

From FussballTransfers and Google translate:

"After nearly three months of being unemployed, Lewis Holtby has found a new employer. The midfielder moves to England. Today the medical check-up takes place at the Blackburn Rovers.

What FT already reported exclusively at the beginning of the week is now taking shape. Lewis Holtby joins the English second division Blackburn Rovers. As our editors learned, the left foot completes the medical check for the hour.

Tomorrow all contracts will be signed, the announcement by the Rovers will follow. For Holtby, who owns not only German but also English nationality, Blackburn is after Tottenham Hotspur and FC Fulham the third English club in his Vita.

Holtby, who celebrates his 29th birthday today, announced his departure from Hamburger SV at the end of March. Since then, the search for a new employer is ongoing. Rumors of a change to Besiktas smashed, now it pulls the former Aachener so in the home of his father."

Obviously a talented player, i'm just wondering to where TM will play him.

I'm inclined to think that it might mean more of this "split strikers" nonsense with Dack in the "false 9" position.

Travis & Johnson holding, Holtby just ahead of them with a front 3 of Gallagher on the right, Dack in the middle and Downing on the left.

Very worried about this one. Ive seen quite a bit of Lewis Holtby on BT t.v. over the past 3 seasons playing for Hamburg who got relegated from the Bundesliga I and then failed to get promotion back as many Bundesliga II games featuring Hamburg were on t.v. on Sundays. Not terrible by any means but massively underwhelming in a fairly poor team with huge crowds and even bigger expectations. Has scored 14 goals in 127 appearances for Hamburg(as player & on loan). I would say he is an upgraded version of Cory Evans with a better goal-threat.Think he could score 3/4 goals a season in the Championship. Bearing in mind the German leagues are more similar to English leagues than probably French,Spanish or Italian but significantly weaker(except goalies) I believe he would be a competent Championship player. If he is being brought in to replace Dack we have big,big problems and considering our lack of defensive options if any defender gets injured this looks total insanity. 

However, on a low enough wage(I doubt) could be useful.

When we are desparately short of semi-reasonable defensive options IF any of our first-choice defenders get injured this signing doesnt make sense. Unless of course Dack is on his way. Holtby is no replacement for Dack.
