Givet signs for Rovers

Blackburn Rovers have made the signing of defender Gael Givet permanent.

The Marseille player arrived at Ewood Park in the January transfer window and played 14 games for them.

The 27 year old Frenchman has signed a four year deal which would run till end of 2012.

Manager Sam Allardyce had this to say about the permanent signing :

It is a critical signing. Gael made a massive impact last season while on loan here and I think he can get even better,

A player coming from abroad would usually need a fair amount of time to adjust to the different culture, the different climate and the different way of doing things.

So much so,the manager lamented the players ability to keep the club from going down.Thats some praise coming from a veteran manager like Allardyce.
