    Stuttgart midfielder Yildiray Basturk is delighted with his move to Blackburn Rovers.

    The Turkey international has joined Rovers on-loan for the remainder of the season.

    The 31-year-old, born in Germany and who has played his entire professional career in the Bundesliga, told Rovers Player TV: "I had contact with Blackburn for three months and I spoke to Tugay, and he said it was a very good club and to come here and try it.

    "I played about 50 games for the national team with Tugay and he always told me what a good club Blackburn is, and over the last three or four weeks he told me I should take this chance.

    "I know how the people here love him, and I will meet him in the next few days and he will help me settle in."
