Blackburn have announced that manager Tony Mowbray has signed a new long-term deal with the club.

Mowbray has extended his stay at Ewood Park until at least 2022, which would take him up to five years with the club, after signing the three-and-a-half-year deal.

The former Celtic, West Brom and Middlesbrough boss lead Rovers to promotion from Sky Bet League One in his first full campaign and has made a promising start to life in the Championship.

Having signed the new deal, he is targeting the top flight of English football.

"I've enjoyed the journey so far, but there is still a long way to go. In my mind, it is always about trying to build, improve and get better," he told the club website.

"I feel as if we can prove to the owners that we can get them back on the right road towards the Premier League. I'm sure they will invest in this team and support the club back to where we belong."

Chief executive Steve Waggott added: "This is the second time I have worked with Tony (previously at Coventry) and what always shines through when working with him is his passion, hard work, enthusiasm and honesty.

"His attention to detail and style of management has already brought success to Rovers by gaining promotion at the first attempt out of League One and back to the Championship."
