iggy Posted July 3, 2006 Report Share Posted July 3, 2006 Blackburn are in need of a new striker since Bellamys departure but this is surely scraping the barrel!!!! From SSN Rovers seal Jeffers move By Graeme Bailey - Created on 3 Jul 2006 Blackburn have completed the signing of Francis Jeffers. The 25-year-old, who has one England cap to his name, has penned a two-year deal at Ewood Park with an option for a third. Jeffers has been looking for a new club since being released by Charlton at the end of the season, following a less than successful spell in South London. The Liverpool-born star is now hoping a move back to the North West will kick-start his career. "I spoke to a number of clubs but once I spoke to Mark [Hughes, manager] my mind was made up as to where I would go," he told the club's website. "I've had a difficult couple of years but I've no doubt that I can do it given a fair crack of the whip here I'm sure I can get back to my best and take this club forward." Jeffers is Blackburn's second signing of the summer following Jason Brown's arrival from Gillingham. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
