Yakubu completes move to Blackburn RoversBy Ian Phillips • Aug 31st, 2011 • Category: News |
Yakubu has completed his transfer to Blackburn Rovers. The Nigerian who joined the club for a club record fee of £11.25m from Middlesbrough in 2007 was an instant hit at Everton, scoring 20 goals in his first season. However the following season he sustained a ruptures Achilles at White Hart Lane and was out of action for over a year. Having never recaptured his previous form the Yak was loaned out to Leicester last year and has now finally left the club on a permanent basis.
We all wish the Yak the very best of luck for the future.
