Big Chris and Blackburn's Orr on the move

Last updated : 25 January 2014 By Tony Scholes

Iwelumo, as was the case in 2010, was signed by Brian Laws last summer, this time for League Two Scunthorpe but he has failed to make any sort of impact, scoring just twice in twelve league games and only being in the starting eleven on four occasions.

Back home to Scotland for Chris Iwelumo

Iwelumo scored eleven league goals for the Clarets in his one season at Turf Moor but nine of them came before Christmas under Laws. He scored again on New Year's Day in the 4-2 win against Sheffield United when Stuart Gray took temporary charge but the goals have certainly dried up since.

His only other Burnley goal came in the 3-2 win at Watford. He added a further four goals for Watford having moved to Vicarage Road and has also scored one for Oldham during a loan and the two he's scored this season for Scunthorpe.

Just over a week ago his contract at Scunthorpe was cancelled by mutual consent, the player no longer in the plans of current boss Russ Wilcox, and two days ago he signed a deal until the end of the season with St. Johnstone, swapping top place in League Two for sixth place in the Scottish Premiership.

His new manager Tommy Wright said: "I'm delighted to get someone with his experience. He'll bring a lot on and off the park, he has played at a good level and has the knack of scoring goals.

"Also, importantly, he has a good physical presence about him which we are looking for. I'm delighted to get him."

It's almost ten years since Bradley Orr was with us, then a 21-year-old midfielder with Newcastle. He made just four league appearances for us on loan and has since gone on to play for Bristol City, QPR, Blackburn, Ipswich and Blackpool, the latter two on loan.

Now 31 he was surplus to requirements at Ewood Park. His four appearances this season have all come for Blackpool and he hasn't featured for his parent club since April last year.

That's led to him making the move to Canada to join Toronto FC on loan for the remainder of the calendar year. Managed by former Blackburn and New Zealand defender Ryan Nelson. General manager Tim Bezbatchenko said: "Bradley Orr  represents the addition of a versatile defender with valuable experience, and gives greater depth to our backline."

It looked as though Orr was set to team up with former Clarets Richard Eckersley and Steven Caldwell but Eckersley's Toronto future is in some doubt.

It's being reported in Canada that Orr has been signed as a replacement for Eckersley who is now awaiting a move due to his hefty Toronto contract. The 2009 signing from Manchester United has played a total of 72 games for Toronto since he initially joined them in 2011.
