'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Etuhu is a Rover

Rovers have completed the signing of Dickson Etuhu to further bolster the midfield options at the club.

Dickson, 30, has signed a four year deal at Ewood Park to re-join his old midfield and Fulham running buddy Danny Murphy who made the same move earlier in pre-season.

The fee is believed to be around the 1.5m mark and manager Steve Kean has got his seventh signing of the summer on board. He was understandably delighted to bag another Premier League player for a crack at the Championship.

The Rovers boss told the official site - 'Dickson is a player I have admired for a long time and he will be a fantastic addition to the squad.

'He is a powerhouse in midfield, who has played at the highest level with Fulham and we feel confident he will complement our other midfield options.'

Good move for me. Will know how to work alongside Murphy and frees NZonzi to go elsewhere. But could we please sign a defender next?

Agreed we need defender, has that Salgado gone or is he still at rovers think he's ***** and he's 38 years old, think a new right back is needed
