Blackburn sign Jacobsen

Published 30/06/2009

Blackburn Rovers have persuaded Denmark international Lars Jacobsen to sign a two-year contract at Ewood Park.

The 29-year-old defender is boss Sam Allardyce's third capture of the summer following the arrivals of Elrio van Heerden and Gael Givet.

Jacobsen, who joins Rovers on a free transfer, started his career at his hometown club, Odense.

He also starred for Hamburg, FC Copenhagen and Nuremberg before joining Everton last summer. However, he sustained a dislocated shoulder while on international duty ten months ago which restricted him to only six appearances for the Toffees, the last being as a substitute in the FA Cup Final.
