Dickson Etuhu: The midfielder has moved to Blackburn Rovers for an undisclosed fee
Blackburn Rovers have completed the signing of Dickson Etuhu from Fulham for an undisclosed fee.
The 30-year-old has signed a four-year contract at Ewood Park, where he is likely to provide a powerful midfield partner for fellow new-boy and former Fulham captain Danny Murphy.
Etuhu, who made more than 125 appearances for Fulham, becomes Rovers' seventh summer signing as manager Steve Kean attempts to build a squad capable of an immediate return to the Premier League.
And the Rovers boss said of the Nigeria international: "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."
Etuhu joined Fulham in 2008 after just one season at Sunderland having previously been at Norwich City.
He started his career at Manchester City before in 2002 joining Preston North End, where he played just short of 150 games.
Etuhu will now fly out to Holland to join his new Rovers team-mates at their pre-season training camp.
