Cameroonian defender Yann Songo'o signs a two-year deal at Blackburn Rovers after a successful trial.

Blackburn Rovers have completed the signing of Cameroonian defender Yann Songo'o.

The 21-year-old has signed a two-year deal at Ewood Park following a successful trial with the Championship outfit.

A statement from the club read: "A powerful presence at the back and a goal threat from set plays, Songo'o has been training with Rovers since early July and impressed in the pre-season friendlies against Wrexham and Portimonense.

"The French-born centre-back hails from a famous footballing family. His dad, Jacques, is a former Cameroon international goalkeeper and his older brother, Franck, came through the ranks at Barcelona."

Songo'o's arrival is the 11th of the summer at Blackburn.
