Blackburn new signing Danny Murphy revealed manager Steve Kean's passion for success was one of the main reasons he chose to return to the north west.

Former England international Murphy, 35, who signed a two-year deal at Ewood Park on Monday, had several options following the expiry of his contract at Fulham but was persuaded by the resolute Kean, who remains determined to win over Blackburn's fans following relegation last month.

The club's Indian owners Venkys confirmed last week that Kean would still be in charge when Blackburn embark on their first season outside the top flight in 11 years.
