Official: Fulham midfielder Etuhu joins Blackburn on four-year deal

Rovers secure signing of Nigeria international on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee as he becomes the seventh new player brought in by Steve Kean this summer
Blackburn have completed the signing of Nigeria international midfielder Dickson Etuhu from Fulham for an undisclosed fee.

The 30-year-old, who will link up with former team-mate Danny Murphy at Ewood Park, has signed a four-year deal with the club.

Etuhu made 127 appearances for the Cottagers including in the 2010 Europa League Final defeat to Atlético Madrid.

The midfielder becomes Steve Kean's seventh signing of the summer as he looks to rebuild his team that was relegated from the Premier League last season.

The Scot is delighted to have secured the signature of Etuhu, and feels he will bring a lot of quality to the Rovers squad.

He told the club's official website: "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."
