Transfer 4- Simon Vukcevic

Steve Kean has today announced the signing of Montenegrin international footballer, Simon Vukcevic on a 3 year contract

Fact File

Name- Simon Vukcevic
DOB- 29/01/86 (25 years)
Height- 5ft 10 (1m79)
Position- Attacking Midfielder

History

Simon's senior career kicked off at Partizan. Turning in dazzling displays in the 2004/5 season, hopes were high for the young man, who had the ability to change the game in a matter of moments, through a delightful pass or a long range screamer. However Vukcevic just couldnt kick on in the following season moving onto Russian outfit Saturn, where his form dipped even further.

Vukcevic's next move turned his career back onto the right track, as Sporting Lisbon came in for the versatile midfielder. Simon shone in 2008, single handedly winning matches for the Portuguese outfit, a hungry attitude on the pitch backed up with his technical ability meant he became a fans favourite.

A couple of modest seasons saw a fluctuation in Simon's form, and a fall out with manager Paulo Bento meant less game time for the midfielder.

Blackburn Rovers pounced, 2 million pounds, a bargain deal for our Rovers.

International

Simon debuted for Serbia-Montenegro in 2004 at the tender age of 18. In 2006, with the split of nationalities, Simon chose to play for Montenegro ahead of Serbia, earning 27 caps to date, as well as his 5 for S-M.

Welcome aboard, Simon Vukcevic!

Seems to be some genuine excitement around this signing (as opposed to the sheer relief when Goodwillie and Petrovic finally got round to being confirmed). I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do - I hope he lives up to his billing!
