Blackburn capture ex-Fulham captain Murphy

Blackburn Rovers have officially announced the signing of former Fulham skipper Danny Murphy.

The 35-year old midfielder was unveiled at Ewood Park today after signing a deal with Rovers and is looking forward to playing regularly under manager Steve Kean.

"First and foremost, in my whole career I've made decisions based on playing football, " Murphy told a press conference.

"Steve made it blatantly obvious that he wanted me here to be on the pitch, playing and performing which was a big factor.

"The conversation I'd had with Fulham was they wanted me to stay but they were maybe looking at bringing someone in to play instead of me rather than competing with me.

"I didn't want to go down the road of finishing my career sitting, playing the odd game here and there. I'd rather be part of a new challenge and a project and that's what this gave me."
