MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean rates 29-year-old U.S. international Jermaine Jones an important addition to the English Premier League club's midfield.

Jones arrived on loan for six months after falling out with Schalke 04 manager Felix Magath after three-plus seasons in Gelsenkirchen.

"He's a fantastic signing for us," said Kean. "Anybody who knows him as a player, he's a natural ball winner, he's avery good passer as well. He's got a fantastic engine, he can go box-to-box, he's a genuine all round midfield player."

Blackburn, which has also signed ParaguayanRoque Santa Cruz during the January transfer window, is tied for 10th place in the EPL but has played one or more games that all but one team below it in what shapes up to be a tight relegation race.

Kean took over as manager in December following the surprise firing of Sam Allardyce.
