Rovers Sign Robinson

Rovers Sign Robinson

Blackburn Rovers have completed the signing of Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Paul Robinson, who becomes Paul Ince's first signing.

The 28-year-old England International has signed a five-year contract with a fee of £3.5 million paid to Tottenham. The signing of Robinson means that Brad Friedel is now set to complete his move to Aston Villa, which could be for as much as £2.75 million.

Robinson is a very good goalkeeper who I personally believe will benefit from making the move to Ewood Park, which will hopefully also benefit England at International level as well with him looking to regain his position firstly in the England squad then as the number one once again.

You'll love him, top bloke. Had a brilliant relationship with the fans just such a shame he lost his confidence in the last year and a half. ENGLANDS, ENGLANDS NUMBER ONE, ENGLANDS NUMBER ONE. Good luck with him, hope it works out

I think he needed a change but not sure he's a good enough to replace friedel.
