Dickson Etuhu: Has penned a four-year contract with Blackburn
Dickson Etuhu has expressed his delight at linking up with Blackburn Rovers, a club plotting an immediate return to the Premier League.
The Nigerian midfielder has penned a four-year contract at Ewood Park after deciding to bring a four-year stint at Fulham to a close.
He followed Danny Murphy to Lancashire from West London, with both former Cottagers swayed by Rovers' ambition.
Steve Kean's side slipped out of the top-flight last season, but a busy summer of transfer activity has them well placed to mount a Championship promotion push.
Etuhu believes the club are capable of clambering out of the second tier and says the opportunity to take in regular football with Rovers made his decision to leave Fulham a 'no-brainer'.
He told the East Anglian Daily Times: "This is exciting to me, coming to a big club like this in the Championship, there are some quality players so I thought it would be good to be part of that.
"I spoke to the manager, he told me his plans of how he wants to play and the direction he wants to take the club.
"Once I heard of the ambition that the club has it was a no-brainer for me."
