Career So Far

Fisher is a product of the academy at Blackburn and has had previous first-team experience at FC United of Manchester and Northampton Town who he was with at the start of the season.

He made his Blackburn debut in August 2017, keeping a clean sheet in an EFL Trophy win against Stoke City. He played twice more in that campaign before spending time with his loan clubs.

The youngster becomes Russell Martin’s fourth signing of the window, having brought in Carlton Morris and Louis Thompson from Norwich City as well as midfielder Ben Gladwin from Queens Park Rangers.

What Was Said

Speaking about the move, Fisher told the club website: “This is a massive club and with the way the manager wants to play, it’s something I really want to buy into.

“I’d say my strengths are my shot-stopping and my distribution. I’m comfortable with the ball at my feet, playing out from the back, and I know that suits the way the team wants to play.

“The goalkeepers that are here are really talented. It’s my job to come in and push them, and do what I can to help the team for the remainder of the season.”

Manager Russell Martin added: “We went through a list of goalkeepers at the start of the month and he was the one that we identified and wanted. We’ve thought off a lot of competition to get him.

“He comes in with really good pedigree. Everyone I’ve spoken to about him, speaks really highly of him. I think he’s a good addition and he certainly strengthens our squad. He’ll be good competition for Lee and our goalkeepers here.”
