Fulham midfielder Dickson Etuhu signs for Blackburn for an undisclosed fee.

The Nigerian has agreed a four-year deal with the npower Championship club, joining former Fulham team-mate Danny Murphy at Ewood Park.

The highlight of Etuhu's time at Fulham was a starting place in their Europa League final defeat by Atletico Madrid in May 2010.

He also started all three group games for Nigeria at the 2010 World Cup.

Fulham FC statement:
The Club can confirm that Dickson Etuhu has joined Blackburn Rovers on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Dickson made over 125 appearances for the Whites since joining four years ago and played an integral role in our 2009/10 Europa League campaign.

The Club would like to thank Dickson for his efforts during his time at Craven Cottage and we wish him all the best for the future.

Etuhu, 30, becomes Rovers boss Steve Kean's seventh signing of the summer as they prepare for life in the second tier following relegation from the Barclays Premier League last season.

The former Norwich and Manchester City man will join his new team-mates in Holland this weekend.

"Dickson is a player I have admired for a long time and he will be a fantastic addition to the squad," Kean said.

"He is a powerhouse in midfield who has played at the highest level with Fulham and we feel confident he will complement our other midfield options."
