The 19-year-old, who can also play in the centre of midfield, has signed an 18-month contract at the Liberty Stadium.

Hanley, an England U19 international, did not make a first-team appearance for Rovers although he did feature on the bench on a couple of occasions.

He was a key member of the Blackburn team that reached the FA Youth Cup final in 2012 and he featured regularly for the Championship club's U21 side.

Hanley becomes the third new arrival at Swansea this month following midfielder Adam King from Hearts and striker David Ngog from Bolton.
