Brown, 29, had long been expected to move to Ewood Park following his release from Doncaster, where he was named player of the year at the end of last season.

"As soon as I found out about the interest from Blackburn that's where I wanted to go," Brown told Blackburn's official website.

"It's a massive club with genuine ambitions for promotion and that is something that I wanted to be a part of and I can't wait to get started.

"I know a few of the lads here and they really rate the manager. I came to the training ground and had a look around and the staff made me feel very welcome. We have Premier League facilities here."

Brown, who began his career at Sunderland, has had previous spells at Norwich and Preston before sealing a move to Doncaster in 2011.

He scored nine goals in 43 appearances for Doncaster who were relegated from the Championship in May.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
