Henchoz moves back to Blackburn
Stephane Henchoz
Henchoz played 82 times for Rovers in his first stint at the club
Blackburn Rovers have completed the signing of defender Stephane Henchoz.

The 32-year-old Swiss centre-back rejoins the Ewood Park club on a deal until the end of the season.

Henchoz, who first signed for Blackburn from German side Hamburg for 3m in 1997, was without a club having been released by Wigan after last season.

He spent two years with Blackburn before moving to Liverpool for 3.5m and spent six years at Anfield before a short spell at Celtic in 2005.

With Ryan Nelsen needing an operation to solve a hamstring problem and Andy Todd unsettled, Rovers boss Mark Hughes needed to bolster his defensive options.

But Henchoz will not feature at Sheffield United on Saturday as he needs time to build up his fitness.
