Marseille defender Gael Givet has joined Blackburn on loan until the end of the season.
Rovers have the option of signing the 27-year-old on a permanent basis at the end of his loan spell, according to a statement on Marseille's website, www.om.net.
Givet, who can play at left-back or at centre-back and has been capped by France, has not played a single match for OM this season.
He joined the Mediterranean side from Monaco in the summer of 2007 and made 29 appearances in Ligue 1 last season.
