Songo'o, who recently left Major League Soccer side Sporting Kansas City, has signed a two-year deal at Ewood Park, and Bowyer believes he will become a fans favourite.

Bowyer told the club's website: "Yann has bags of energy and is full of confidence.

"He's a no-nonsense defender, he's a winner, he just wants to improve and he's a great lad. The fans will enjoy watching him play.

"He's only 21, he is going to have to get used to the pace of the English game, he's been playing out in the MLS, but he's acquitted himself very well over the period of time that he has been here with us.

"We are delighted that he has crossed the line and signed, we are just waiting on his clearance now."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
