Rovers are delighted to announce that Corry Evans has today signed a new long-term contract with the club.

The 28-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a two-and-a-half-year deal, which will keep him at Ewood Park until June 2021. 

The Northern Ireland international, who has 52 caps for his country, joined Rovers after helping Hull City secure promotion to the Premier League in the summer of 2013.

Evans is closing in on 150 starts in a Rovers shirt, having made 168 appearances for the club in all competitions.

The classy midfielder played a pivotal role in Rovers' promotion to the Championship last season, forming a formidable partnership alongside Richie Smallwood in the centre of the park.

He has remained a firm fixture in the side this season, starting 17 of Rovers' 21 league games, as Tony Mowbray's men have made a steady start to life back in the second tier.

Evans becomes the third senior player to commit his future to the club in recent weeks, following in the footsteps of skipper Charlie Mulgrew and fans favourite Elliott Bennett.
