Marcus Olsson makes Rovers move

Blackburn Rovers have confirmed the signing of Swedish forward Marcus Olsson, the twin brother of midfielder Martin Olsson, who is already at Ewood Park.

Marcus, 23, who can play out wide or further forward, becomes Rovers' second arrival of the January transfer window, signing for the club on a free transfer from Swedish side Halmstads BK.

He has signed a two-and-a-half year deal with Rovers that sees him contracted until the summer of 2014.

Both brothers were handed a trial at Blackburn in 2005, and whilst Martin secured a permanent move to Rovers, Marcus returned to Sweden.

He made a move to Allsvenskan side Halmstads BK in 2008 and earned his first caps at international level earlier this month.
