Jones completes Rovers loan move
WIGAN Athletic centre midfielder Dave Jones has signed on loan for Blackburn Rovers until the end of the season.
The 28-year-old has made 35 appearances for Wigan in 18 months, since signing from Wolves, and feared limited opportunities at the Premier League club.
Jones is expected to go straight into Rovers' squad for this afternoon's Championship visit of Peterborough.
Jones said: "I'm delighted to be here. Blackburn is a massive club. I want to come here and make an impact, so I'm really looking forward to it.
"I thought my opportunities at Wigan would be limited for the rest of the season and this chance arose so I took it."
Jones started his career at Manchester United, before moving to Derby in 2007, where he helped the Rams into the Premier League.
