The defender finds a home in the Championship once again.

Everton defender Shane Duffy has reportedly joined Blackburn Rovers on a £1.5 million deal.

Duffy was loaned out to Yeovil Town last season where he made 37 appearances with the club, who were relegated from the Championship to League One.

The 22-year-old Republic of Ireland international last appeared for the Toffees in the 2014-15 preseason. He found it hard to break into the starting eleven behind Phil Jagielka and John Stones, and was on loan last season to get first team minutes.

Blackburn Rovers get a solid defender who played in almost every match in the Championship last year for Yeovil Town. Everton get a decent price for a player who needs more experience and matches before he plays at the Premier League level.
