Vince Grella Signed!!!

Blackburn Rovers have officially announced this evening that they have agreed the signing of Australian International Vincenzo Grella on a 4 year deal from Torino.

Is it Sasman's birthday? Who knows. All we do know is that Rovers have secured their 3rd signing of the summer.

Grella, 29 in October has put pen to paper on a four year deal. Further details are due.

Good signing lads, lets not hold our breath for the other half of the sasman "make a wish and hope it comes true" club, as Palermo want nearly 10 million for him!

Great signing is what we needed as Hughes didn't fancey Vogel, so hopefully will do the business wonder if he will play tomorow?

Good, hope he can get some tackles in and add a bit of mettle into the midfield and provide a good foil for David Dunn.

i can see him and dunn being pretty good together and now with vogel and reidy in there too i think the axe will probably leave. i still feel we need a right winger though and also have emerton at right back again as his pace and strength make him really hard work for attackers. remember when he droped back into right back against city because petrovs pace was too much for zurab??

Sounds like a great signing....i don't think that he really fancies the Axe or Vogul. He now has Dunny, Reid, Grella and Tugay for these positions and i'm not sure that the other two will feature...........AND the Andrews rumours continue to rumble on!!!! Urrrggghhh

I'm pleased that this deal has gone through, we were badly in need of someone to fill the role of defensive midfielder. Mokoena is not good enough to play for us and Reid has'nt impressed me when he's taken up this position either. Well done Incey!!!

Being serious though, this is a good move and one that I'm sure we'll be looking back on as a superb one in a few months time. Nice one Incey!!!

well, if that happens, ill gently remind him that it was Bresciano he really wanted, Grella was the obligatory ginger hanger on that got tagged into it!
