Blackburn midfielder Steven Nzonzi has signed a new five-year contract to stay at Ewood Park. Frenchman Nzonzi was the club's player of the year in his first season after arriving from Amiens, and the 21-year-old has signed an improved deal which will keep him at Ewood Park until June 2015.
Rovers' chairman John Williams said: "We are delighted to secure Steven for the long term.
"He was outstanding last year - his first in this country - and the new deal is richly deserved. We hope he makes further progress and continues the fantastic form that impressed so many people last season.
"Along with the new contracts also agreed with the likes of Phil Jones, Martin Olsson and Grant Hanley, and the important re-contracting of Morten Gamst Pedersen, this represents further good progress for the club this summer.
"However, there is still business to be done. We remain determined to secure a new striker and I can assure all our supporters that our search continues in earnest in that regard."
