ROVERS have signed midfielder Jacob Davenport from Manchester City for an undisclosed fee on a four-year deal.

The teenager becomes Tony Mowbray's second signing of the summer following Joe Rothwell's arrival from Oxford United.

Davenport made 17 appearances for Burton Albion during a loan spell in the Championship last season and could make his Rovers debut at Hibs in the first pre-season friendly this weekend.

And the 19-year-old admits he can't wait to get started at Ewood Park.

“I’m absolutely buzzing to join a massive club like Blackburn Rovers, with the history it’s got behind it," he said.

"I can’t wait to get started and to play in the Championship for this club.

“The history of this club speaks for itself. When Rovers come knocking on your door, you can’t turn that down.

“The manager didn’t really have to sell this club to me, because I already know what a great club it is.

"He told me all about his philosophy and his belief in the way he wants to play, and that suits me perfectly.

"He’s a footballing man and I can see the way he wants to play.

“The last couple of years haven’t been what this club is used to, but going forward I think things are positive.

"Hopefully we can get back to the Premier League as soon as possible."
