Blackburn confirm Grella arrival

Australia international Vince Grella has joined Blackburn on a four-year contract, becoming manager Paul Ince's fifth signing.

The 28-year-old joins Rovers - and Socceroos team-mate Brett Emerton - for an undisclosed fee from Italian side Torino after the deal was confirmed by Blackburn's official website, www.rovers.co.uk.

The midfielder, who had been linked to Fulham earlier this summer, joins goalkeeper Paul Robinson, Julio Santa Cruz and loan pair Danny Simpson and Carlos Villanueva in arriving at Ewood Park since Ince's arrival.
