MIDFIELDER Corry Evans has signed a new three-and-a-half year deal with Blackburn Rovers.

The Northern Ireland international, who has helped his country quality for Euro 2016, was set to be out of contract next summer.


Evans, 25, who has been in good form this season, told Rovers’ official website: “I’m delighted to get it signed and I’m looking forward to playing here for the next three-and-a-half years.

“From the first minute I walked through the door, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time and I’m looking forward to the future.

“It’s a great club to play for and going to Brockhall every day for training is a great place to go to work.

“Everyone around the club has been great with me, the fans have been great, so I’ve really enjoyed my time.

“It’s probably one of the longest spells I’ve been at a club in my professional career, so it does feel like home. I’m really settled where I am and I really enjoy playing here.”

Evans joined Rovers on a three-year deal in August 2013 after helping Hull City win promotion to the Premier League.

He has made 75 appearances for the Ewood Park outfit, scoring two goals.
