Blackburn Rovers have signed former Everton defender Shane Duffy for an undisclosed fee and the 22-year-old swiftly took to social media in order to express a: his thanks to his former club and b: his excitement at moving forward with Blackburn.
He said on Twitter: "So I've signed for Blackburn Rovers today and am very excited about the new challenge in my career - I can't wait to get going!
"I'm sad about leaving Everton, but can't thank everyone at the club enough for what they have done for me from the first day I got there.
"The fans have been amazing and I will always follow Everton," he said.
"I'd like to wish everyone at the club every success and hope everything goes well!
"Now I can't wait to get going with my new club."
Duffy had recently completed loan spells at Burnley, Scunthorpe and, last season, at Yeovil Town (see photo above).
The Irishman is a tall athlete and at 6-foot, 4-inches, is competent at marking physically imposing centre forwards from opposition teams.
In 2010, Duffy lacerated his liver during a "freak" accident in a training match and, after the "life-threatening injury" bounced back strong this summer as he made his international bow, winning his first cap against Costa Rica.
