Etuhu says Blackburn move was easy
The Nigeria midfielder, who inked a four-year deal at Ewood Park this summer, looks set to form an experienced backbone to Steve Kean's midfield alongside fellow former Fulham midfielder Danny Murphy.
"This is exciting to me, coming to a big club like this in the Championship, there are some quality players so I thought it would be good to be part of that," he told the East Anglian Daily Times.
"I spoke to the manager, he told me his plans of how he wants to play and the direction he wants to take the club.
"Once I heard of the ambition that the club has, it was a no-brainer for me (to decide to move).”
Etuhu was regarded as a surplus to requirement by Fulham Dutch manager Martin Jol last season.
