Blackburn have signed Schalke midfielder Jermaine Jones on a six-month loan deal.
The 29-year-old USA international becomes the club's second signing of the transfer window after the arrival of Roque Santa Cruz from Manchester City.
Manager Steve Kean told the club's official website: "He's a fantastic signing for us. Anybody who knows him as a player, he's a natural ball winner, he's a very good passer as well."
