Rovers manager Tony Mowbray expressed his delight on Friday, after Bradley Dack put pen-to-paper on a new three-year contract at the club.

The attacker will remain at Ewood Park until at least the summer of 2021 after agreeing the deal, having finished as the club's top scorer in his maiden season.

Asked about the news, Mowbray said: "I'm delighted Bradley has signed, and that's it all done and dusted."

"As with the other lads who have done exceptionally well, I felt Bradley deserved a new contract, even though he only signed a year ago.

"He came from Gillingham, respectively, and I wanted to make sure he gets what he deserves.

"He's an important player in our team and I think we were just trying to bring him in line with the other players."

Dack won a host of accolades last season including the League One and Rovers Player of the Year awards respectively, and the boss says his infuence on the side is no secret.

"He's a vital player for us and everyone can see that. He trains with a smile on his face every day and he's great to be around," he added.

"I knew how technically gifted he was before he arrived here. He can drive a team forward on his own at times with his enthusiasm for the game.

"We needed to make sure he adapted to playing with some bigger personalities and players and he's done that exceptionally well."
