Etuhu, 30, has signed a four-year deal at Ewood Park, where he will link up with former Craven Cottage team-mate Danny Murphy, who joined Rovers earlier in the summer.

The Nigeria international found his Fulham opportunities limited under new manager Martin Jol last season, and has become the seventh signing of the summer for relegated Blackburn and their beleaguered manager Steve Kean.

Etuhu, who has also played for Norwich and Sunderland, links up with his new team-mates on a pre-season tour in the Netherlands this weekend.

Kean said he had signed "a player I have admired for a long time", telling Blackburn's official website: "He will be a fantastic addition to the squad.

"He is a powerhouse in midfield who has played at the highest level with Fulham, and we feel confident he will complement our other midfield options."
