Transfer 5- Scott Dann

Linked to clubs all over the Premier League, it came as a surprise to many when the Birmingham City Starlet elected to join Blackburn Rovers on Deadline Day...

Fact File

Name: Scott Dann
Date of Birth: 14 Feb, 1987
Place of Birth: Liverpool, England (Its not his fault...)
Height: 6ft 2 (1m 88)
Position: Centre Back

Career

Scott Dann signed his first professional contract at Walsall in 2003. An impressive few seasons saw Walsall promoted as Division 2 champions, with Dann earning himself a bumper 3 year contract. However, it wasn't enough to stop big spenders Coventry snaring the Young English man for a fee rumoured to be 1 million pounds in 2008.

It is at Coventry where Dann first linked with Steve Kean, building a relationship which brings him to where he is today. Dann was appointed captain for the 2008-09 season, and also earned his first cap for the English Under 21 outfit.

2009 saw Dann step into the big league, with Birmingham City breaking their club record for a defender, snaring the Centre Back for a price in the region of 3.5 Million pounds. Building a solid partnership with the more experienced Roger Johnson, Dann started to build his reputation as a strong, determined centre half, and the big boys started looking, with Liverpool and Arsenal both interested in the Englishman.

However, it was Blackburn Rovers who snatched the signing on deadline day, a rumoured fee of 5 million pounds enough to sway Birmingham City to let go of their prized asset, providing Blackburn with a solid replacement for the departured Phil Jones.

Great signing, Just hope his heart is in it, as he did not seem to look over the moon that he had landed at Rovers

I see what you mean Glen but it was probably a long day, stressful. Not all footballers love to be in front of the camera giving interviews ;). I think he will looka bit more perky once he's met his team mates and trained for a week. Also he could jsut be a miserable git in general haha! Still pinching myself we actually managed to get a good english CB who still has potential to fulfill!

Excellent news, no doubt. And we kept Samba! Those two could be really something at the back. The start of better times?
