He tweeted: "Unfortunately all good things must come to an end, and after three great seasons my time at Blackburn Rovers is over!

"Just want to say a massive thanks to Rovers as they were the team to show faith in me and give me the opportunity to play full time professional football.

"To all the staff, coaches and players thank you for welcoming me to the club and helping me improve not only as a player but as a person and I wish you all success in the future.
