Blackburn Rovers have signed midfielder Joe Rothwell from League One club Oxford United on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Rothwell, 23, scored six goals in 41 appearances for the Us last season.

The ex-Manchester United youth player had loans at Blackpool and Barnsley before joining Oxford in July 2016.

"It's a great opportunity for me and I can't wait to get started but I want to thank everyone at Oxford." Rothwell told his former club's website.
