Welcome to Ewood Park Yildiray Basturk
Blackburn Rovers have completed the signing of Turkish star Yildiray Basturk on a free transfer from Stuttgart.
The midfield playmaker comes in initially on a short term deal until the end of the season but there is every reason to suspect that the deal could be made extended if he is a success.
Basturk has found himself out of favour at Stuttgart this season and Blackburn have capitalised on that by moving for the International.
Although going off the boil in recent times, Basturk is renowned for being a super talented player and if Sam Allardyce can man-manage him back to anywhere near the level he used to be at then this could prove inspired.
