Martin Olsson: Spent eight years at Ewood Park

Martin Olsson: Spent eight years at Ewood Park

The Sweden left-back, who can also play in midfield, returns to the Premier League after Rovers accepted an undisclosed offer.

Manager Chris Hughton told the club website: "We're delighted with the addition of Martin. He's been playing in England for seven years and is well acclimatised to the Premier League.

"He can also play anywhere on the left hand side so he brings us good flexibility in that sense, plus at 25 he's at an age where he has some experience and also some time to improve.

"At this time it's about improving the squad that we have and Martin certainly does that."

Olsson, who arrived at Ewood Park as a 17-year-old eight years ago, leaves with a record of six goals in 143 appearances.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
