Rovers Sign Givet

Sam Allardyce has made his first major signing of the transfer window with the signing of Gael Givet from Marseille.

Givet has been out of favour after a fall out with Marseille boss Eric Gerets.

Gael is adept at centre back but also is an accomplished left back which will provide experienced cover in all areas.

Blackburn have the option to buy at the end of the season but no details have been released about agreed fees and option details.

Let me be the first to welcome Gael to the club and hope he helps our cause this season.

Whilst cant say I know loads about the man he certainly does come with a lot of pedigree and the club look to have taken care to make sure he is a shrewd buy. I am confident.

be interesting to see what Big Sam does at Blackburn. He always had a good eye for a bargain whilst at Bolton. Hope he doesn't bring scum bag Barton to Rovers though!
The Fear
cant see that happening mate, he would want too much in wages aside from the fact that we aint that keen on him anyway!
Mikey D
Welcome aboard!!!!!! All the best mate, maybe he can find the answer for this weeks Rovers trivia lol
sasman
Well if he can play left and centre back that's a bonus. His stats on FM are quite good to so I believe he will be a decent purchase!

Nice to see an accomplised defender signing up...dont know if I would play him in the center or on the left though...Stevies play has been down the last couple of games. And apparently that Zoro guy (also defender) was playing in a "behind-closed-doors" game against Huddersfield yesterday! Know we just really really really need to buy a good right midfielder - i liked the sound of that Franco guy from Fiorentina.
redstarman
This is an excellent signing I reckon. Question is, will he start ahead of Warnock? Or does this mean Sam's thinking about flogging Warnock elsewhere?
Money4midfield
money - or maybe he thinks that Olsson is not ready and does not provide adequate cover? worth a thought.
Mikey D
i'm a huge fan of warnock, and it will take a lot for givet to prove that he deserves to start. nonetheless, it's great to have an extra body at the back. may be big sam is planning to play warnock is midfield...lol
dominator2800
Quite true Mikey. But still, Givet is an international quality left-back. Got to wonder haven't you?
Money4midfield
good signing, got him on loan if hes any good we will sign him and if not, then we aint lost anything
glen9mullan
Maybe. Having two quality players in each position is only a good thing though IMO. I would say though if we signed this Janko guy then Santa is on his way!
Mikey D
not sure sam is looking at janko?? i know ince was but surely sam has his own targets, judging by some of the fees being branded i.e jones,bellamy ect i think it might be a foreign replacement if there is one or someone in on loan, vela would fit the loan category
glen9mullan
Yeah maybe a loan signing would save money until summer but Sam has said today he cant even find a repalcement so wouldnt consider selling him!
