Brett's exit confirmed
Rovers have this morning announced that a deal has been struck for Brett Emerton to return home to Australia to play for Sydney FC.
Rumours were rampant yesterday that Brett could be off after 8 years at Ewood Park and the club have confirmed that Emerton's future lies in the A-League.
The good news is that Brett will play for Rovers one more time before he heads off into the sunset.
Rovers website is reporting - 'AFC side Sydney FC made an approach to Rovers for Emerton and an announcement on his future is expected shortly, although any deal would not be concluded until next week, allowing the Aussie international to be involved in Rovers' Barclays Premier League match against Everton on Saturday.'
As many have said yesterday, he will be sorely, sorely, missed.
