Audax Italiano midfielder Carlos Villanueva is confident of success at Blackburn Rovers.

The Chile international is joining Rovers in a £4 million deal and he told "I have been following English football forever so to be here at last and to have a chance to play is just what I wanted.

"I feel ready to do well for Blackburn and I think I can be a success in the Premier League.

"I guess you could say I'm a skilful player whose strength is his technique. I'm always looking for a pass to create a chance for the strikers.

"Yes, it's a different style of play in South America but it will not take me long to adapt to England."
