BLACKBURN Rovers have completed the signing of Everton centre back Shane Duffy.

The 22-year-old, who played one game on loan for Burnley in 2011, moves to Ewood Park on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Republic of Ireland international Duffy, who watched Rovers go down to a 3-1 defeat at Wolves on Saturday, said: "I'm delighted and I'm over the moon to be here.

"It was tough decision to leave Everton of course but it was a chance to come to a great club and play football - that's my main aim and that's what I want to do."

One player on his way out of Rovers is Jack O'Connell.

The 20-year-old is set to re-sign for Rochdale on loan until January.

O'Connell helped Rochdale, managed by former Rovers defender Keith Hill, win promotion to League One last season while on loan at Spotland.
