Championship side Blackburn Rovers have today announced the signing of Stuttgart defender Clinton Mola (21) on a season-long loan from Bundesliga side Stuttgart.
“We are very pleased to welcome Clinton to Blackburn Rovers,” said Rovers’ Director of Football Gregg Broughton. “A versatile defender, who can play centrally in a two or a three, on the left in a four or a five, and also in midfield, Clinton gives us great options to suit Jon’s desire for tactical flexibility.
“He was brave enough to go abroad at a young age to play first team football and now comes to Rovers as a regular England international at Under-20 and Under-21 level, and with experience in the Bundesliga.
“I’d like to thank Sven Mislintat and his team at VfB Stuttgart for their cooperation, along with Emeka Obasi and Ed Bonsu who, as Clinton’s representatives, continue to prioritise playing opportunities for their young players ahead of short-term gain.”
Mola has played 14 games across all competitions for Stuttgart – the Englishman’s loan to Blackburn Rovers includes an option to buy.
