Blackburn Rovers have completed the signing of Drogheda United right-back, James Brown. 

The 23-year old joins the English Championship high-flyers after three seasons at Head In The Game Park.

Brown was a near ever-present in the Drogs team that performed admirably upon their first season back in the top flight under Tim Clancy, and was rewarded for his displays with a place in the PFAI Team of the Year.

He'd impressed Blackburn's staff while on trial there in recent weeks.

Brown will initially link up with Rovers' under-23 squad, but will provide cover for first-team players like Ryan Nyambe and Joe Rankin-Costello.

Blackburn's under-23 squad is already home to Republic of Ireland U19 international, Zak Gilsenan.
