Blackburn boss Allardyce excited about Van Heerden potential

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce is delighted with their capture of Club Brugge midfielder Elrio van Heerden.

The 25-year-old, who began his career in Denmark with FC Copenhagen, has signed a two-year deal with Rovers.

"We've signed a very talented young man, I think it is a great addition," Allardyce told the Blackburn official club website.

"He's had a couple of injuries which have been hiding his talents for a while, but we've monitored him over the last few months.

"He was here on Monday and flew through our Premier League standard tests."
