Blackburn sign Marseille's Givet

Blackburn Rovers have signed Marseille defender Gael Givet on loan until the end of the season, with an option to make the deal permanent.

Givet, 27, played 29 times for Marseille last season but he has not featured in this campaign after a fall-out with manager Erik Gerets.

The French international has 13 caps and is able to play at left-back or in the centre of defence.

Givet signed for Marseille in June 2007 after spending 10 years at Monaco.

A Champions League finalist with Monaco in 2004, he could make his Rovers debut in the FA Cup fourth round tie at Sunderland.
