Best joins the Rovers
Rovers have this evening confirmed the signing of Newcastle striker Leon Best.
In what looks a mutually beneficial deal for all three parties involved, the tall striker has moved on a four year deal and for a fee of £3 million and rising (not by the hour).
Best did have options available to him in the Premier League but none firmed up any pursuit and he has been persuaded to join the now Championship Rovers and become our second summer signing after the capture of Danny Murphy.
Leon has also been given the number 9 shirt which should go some way to showing fans what role he will be playing at the club.
And as long as he is nowhere near as bad as Anthony Modeste I am sure he will get on just fine.
Welcome to Ewood Leon.
