19 August: Spanish full-back Michel Salgado has today joined Blackburn on a two-year deal.

17 July: Blackburn hope to have veteran striker Christian Vieri on show when they play in a three-team tournament in Croatia tomorrow.

8 July: The Italian striker Christian Vieri will train with Blackburn at their summer camp in Austria and undergo a trial for the club as he seeks to resurrect his career, the 35-year-old having been without a team since Atalanta released him in April.

7 July: Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce believes he has been priced out of a move for Real Madrid striker Ruud van Nistelrooy. The former Manchester United forward has slipped down the pecking order at the Bernabeu and Allardyce was interested in bringing the 32-year-old back to England. However, the Rovers boss said the Dutchman's wages were proving prohibitive to any move, with his current level of fitness also contributing to his decision not to pursue any transfer.

30 June: Blackburn have signed French midfielder Steven N'Zonzi from Amiens SC on a four-year contract. The 20-year-old, who represented France at youth level, has moved to Ewood Park for an undisclosed fee.
