Blackburn Rovers

‘Better than Raya’ – Plenty of Blackburn Rovers fans react to fresh player arrival



Sky Bet Championship side Blackburn Rovers have completed their fourth signing of the summer, with Brighton and Hove Albion goalkeeper Christian Walton arriving on a season-long loan deal.

The 23-year-old has enjoyed two hugely impressive loan spells with Wigan Athletic over the last two seasons, helping them win promotion from League One in 2018 and keeping the most clean sheets in the division, with 19 to his name.

Last season, he helped the Latics avoid an immediate relegation with ease, but he has now completed yet another loan move from the AMEX Stadium to join Blackburn.

Tony Mowbray will have been on the lookout for a new shot-stopper, with David Raya moving to fellow Championship side Brentford earlier on in this summer, so the signing of Walton was a much-needed one to say the least.

It has been a busy summer for Rovers thus far, with Manchester City defender Tosin Adarabioyo set to arrive on loan after spending last season with West Brom.
