Rovers' latest signing Luke Varney has spoken of his delight at joining the football club.

With the loan window opening on Saturday, Rovers wasted little time in securing the services of the experienced front man, with Varney thrust straight into the action as a second half substitute in the goalless draw with Middlesbrough.

Speaking after the match at the Riverside, Varney said: "I'm delighted to be here, I've had a lot of conversations with the club and the manager and I am happy to get it over the line after a week of turmoil at Leeds.

"I was just delighted to finally get the shirt on today. I'm really pleased to be here, I can put it all behind me now and I'm hoping to do it on the pitch for Blackburn.

"I know a lot of the staff and that can only help. I felt wanted from the second that I walked into the building and that is really important.

"Hopefully I can pay them back with some good performances."
