Gary Bowyer believes new signing Bryan Dabo will add a different dimension to Rovers' midfield.
The 21-year-old Frenchman has joined the Ewood Park club on loan for the rest of the 2013-14 season from League 1 side Montpellier with the manager excited by his arrival.
"I'm delighted that he has agreed to join us and come on loan until the end of the season," said the Rovers boss.
"He's a positive lad, both on and off the pitch and he brings a different dimension to what we have already got in midfield.
"He can run forward, he can attack the space very well, he can receive the ball ever so well under pressure and we are hoping that he settles in quickly and that he'll be someone that can excite the fans.
"We are delighted that we have managed to get him."
