Blackburn Rovers have signed Canada goalkeeper Jayson Leutwiler from fellow League One side Shrewsbury Town on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Leutwiler, 28, is reunited with former boss Tony Mowbray, who signed him for Middlesbrough in July 2012 where he made just five appearances.

The Swiss-born keeper played 140 games for Shrewsbury in three seasons at the Meadow and has two Canada caps.

He comes in to replace Jason Steele, who joined Sunderland last week.
