Blackburn Rovers sign Jason Steele and Ryan Tunnicliffe

2 September 2014

Blackburn have completed a late double deadline-day deal by signing Jason Steele and Ryan Tunnicliffe.

Goalkeeper Steele, 24, has agreed a season-long loan switch from Middlesbrough and 21-year-old midfielder Tunnicliffe arrives on a similar deal from Fulham.

Steele was Boro's regular number one until this season and has 142 appearances in total for the club, while f ormer Manchester United trainee Tunnicliffe played just three times for Fulham and had a spell on loan with Wigan last season.

Tunnicliffe told the club website: "I can't wait to get started.

"First and foremost it is a massive club, a club that belongs in the Premier League, so I'm looking forward to getting back playing and obviously the target is to get the club back up there."
