Matt Kilgallon joins Blackburn on a free transfer

The 29-year-old, who left the Stadium of Light at the end of last season, has agreed a two-year contract at Ewood Park.

Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer said: "He's left-sided and has the ability to play in a couple of positions for us, both at centre-back and at left-back.

"He will bring a lot of experience from playing in the Premier League and in the Championship."

Kilgallon, who made his debut for Leeds 11 years ago, made just 21 league starts in two-and-a-half years on Wearside and had loan spells at Middlesbrough and Doncaster before his release in June.

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
