Best makes Blackburn switch
Blackburn last night completed the signing of Newcastle striker Leon Best on a four-year contract.
The 25-year-old underwent a medical at Ewood Park yesterday afternoon and committed to the relegated Lancashire club until 2016. A statement on the club's official website said: "Blackburn Rovers have this evening completed the signing of Leon Best from Newcastle United. "The 25-year-old striker makes the move from the North East to the North West for a fee of more than £3m, signing a four-year deal." Best scored 10 goals in 46 appearances for the Magpies following his switch from Coventry in January 2010. He will bolster Steve Kean's attacking resources following the departure of Yakubu.
