David Jones: Looking to take his chance at Blackburn

The 28-year-old, a former England U21 international, signed for the Latics in summer 2011 but has managed 35 appearances since.

The former Manchester United trainee told the official Rovers website: "I'm delighted to be here, Blackburn is a massive club.

"I want to come here and make an impact so I'm really looking forward to it.

"It is a good team and one that I want to try and get in and do well. It has been doing well recently, there are a lot of quality players the football club and hopefully there'll be opportunities for me to come in and help the football club achieve their aim this season."
