DONE DEAL: Blackburn Rovers sign Stewart Downing

Blackburn Rovers have signed former England international Stewart Downing.

Downing, who has a wealth of experience and over 400 Premier League appearances under his belt, has put pen-to-paper on a one-year deal through to June 2020.

The 34-year-old, formerly of Aston Villa and Liverpool, joins on a free transfer from Middlesbrough, where he started his career as a schoolboy.

Brought in to bolster their promotion bid, Downing was part of the side that secured a return to the Premier League in 2016-17. He would go on to make a further 172 appearances for the club – taking his tally in Boro colours past the 400 mark – before sealing a summer switch to Ewood Park.
