Blackburn boss Steve Kean believes Scott Dann will be a valuable addition to his squad after his debut last weekend.
Dann, who joined Blackburn on transfer deadline day from Birmingham, helped Rovers earn a draw from their visit to Fulham last Sunday.
The 24-year-old has impressed Kean upon his arrival at Ewood Park and he feels Dann will bring leadership to his backline.
"Scotty does what it says on the tin. He heads it, he kicks it, he talks, he's a leader and I think he has got a willingness to win," Kean told the club's official website.
"I thought for his first game for us he was excellent, he showed all the qualities he's got."
