Rovers Sign Van Heerden
Blackburn have signed South Africa international Elrio van Heerden from Club Brugge as Sam Allardyce completes his first summer signing.
Van Heerden joins the Premier League club on a free transfer from the Belgian side and signs on a free transfer.
The 25-year-old mate of Benni McCarthy can play anywhere across the midfield and is exactly the type of player that Sam wanted to bring in.
He is currently training with the South African squad ahead of the Confederations Cup, but was given permission to leave the training camp in order to sign his Rovers contract and complete formalities.
He also use to play for FC Copenhagen and is a vibrant, pacy player.
As Sam is looking to add a more youthful, vibrant look to the Rovers squad next season - this is step one in the right direction.
