Brittain officially joined Rovers on a permanent deal on Thursday morning, becoming the club’s first signing since the appointment of Jon Dahl Tomasson as the club’s new head coach earlier this summer.
The right-wing-back has joined the Lancashire club after a two-year spell at Barnsley, arriving at Ewood Park for an undisclosed fee.
Having completed that move, Brittain has put pen to paper on a four-year deal with Rovers, securing his future in the North West until the end of the 2025/26 season.
Which ten of these 25 Blackburn Rovers facts are fake?
Now it seems as though the 24-year-old is relishing the prospect of getting down to business with his new club.
Taking to Twitter to react to confirmation of his arrival at Ewood Park, Brittain wrote: “Absolutely delighted to have signed for @Rovers, can’t wait to get started and play in front of you all at Ewood. Looking forward to the years ahead”.

Blackburn are set to begin their Championship campaign a week on Saturday when they host QPR at Ewood Park, in what could be Brittain’s competitive debut for the club.
This does look as though it should be a very good signing for Blackburn over the next few years.
With Ryan Nyambe having departed the club earlier this summer following after his contract expired, a new option on the right-hand side of Rovers’ defence.
In Brittain, the club are getting a player to fill that role, who possesses exactly the sort of attacking that will likely be a feature at the club under the management of Tomasson.
Given he has signed a four-year deal, and with a fee involved as well, this looks to be a welcome show of intent from Rovers that fans will hope sets the tone for the rest of their summer business.
