Rudy Gestede has today completed a permanent transfer to Aston Villa.
The Benin international joins the Premier League side on a five-year deal, for an undisclosed fee.
Gestede joined Rovers from Cardiff City on an initial loan deal in November 2013 before making the move a permanent one the following January for £200,000. During his 18-month spell at Ewood Park he scored 35 goals in 72 appearances.
Rovers would like to thank Rudy for his hard work and effort during his time at the club and wishes him all the very best for the future.
