Blackburn have signed midfielder Elrio van Heerden from Club Brugge on a free transfer.

The 25-year-old South Africa international has secured a two-year-deal at Ewood Park.

Manager Sam Allardyce was looking to boost his midfield options with Aaron Mokoena joining Portsmouth and Tugay retiring.

Van Heerden has good experience in European football, starting his career at FC Copenhagen in 2002. He moved to Brugge four years later.

Capped 25 times, he is currently with the South Africa squad preparing for the Confederations Cup.
