Brett Agrees 4 Year Deal

Brett Agrees 4 Year Deal

Brett Emerton has agreed a new long-term contract with Blackburn Rovers, the new deal will keep him at Ewood Park until summer 2012.

Emerton has been with the club since 2003 and despite making a tepid start in his first year has turned into an excellent, versatile player for the blue and white halves.

And now a new four year deal shows that new manager Paul Ince sees Sasman's favourite player as an important part of his plans.

Emerton could be shifted up into the right midfield spot this season after his crossing was found to be actually rather good and his apce and fitness is still excellent.

Rovers' chairman, John Williams told the Lancashire Telegraph: 'This is great news for the club.

'Brett has been an excellent servant over the last five years and we are delighted to have agreed a deal which keeps him here for another four years.

'He's a very willing member of the squad and a real club man.'

Good lad Brett and Sasman's birthday has come early this year.

I think we can all agree this is a good move. Brett has turned into one of the most consistent members of the squad.

Great to see him comitting to Rovers, gradulaly more and more people are doing this. But I do agree we DO still need a recognised right-back.

We def need an established right back but we also need Emo as he can provide an excellent option at right back and right midfield, as well as filling in the middle as well. he is better in his third chocie position than some players are in their first.
