Former Manchester United and Sunderland defender Wes Brown has joined Blackburn until the end of the season, the Championship side have announced.
The 36-year-old has been training with Rovers since leaving the Black Cats in the summer. A deal had been delayed by a calf injury Brown suffered during pre-season.
The former England international will also spend time working with Damien Johnson and David Dunn coaching the club's Under-23 side.
Blackburn boss Owen Coyle has praised Brown's attitude during training, saying on Tuesday night: "He's been outstanding. He's a constant professional - his attitude has been exemplary around the training ground with the young players, helping and encouraging them."
