BLACKBURN Rovers have completed the loan signing of Frenchman Bryan Dabo with the Ewood Park club having the option of signing the 21-year-old permanently in the summer.

Dabo joins from French side Montpellier but will not be in the squad for tonight's match with Barnsley as he is still awaiting international clearance.

After completing his move, Dabo said: "I'm here to enjoy my football and to play well with the team and maybe catch the play-offs. "I'm very glad to be here because I am coming to a good team.

"It is a new experience for me - a new country. I'll try to speak English, have a good attitude, keep smiling and enjoy my time here, then everything will be okay."

The Marseille-born youngster came through the youth ranks at Montpellier and has made 19 appearances for the French side after making his debut against PSG in 2010.

He has also been capped by France Under 21s
