Dunn Would Like To Return…One Day

Dunn Would Like To Return…One Day

Reports of a Blackburn Rovers bid for former star David Dunn has been confirmed once and for all, by the player himself, and such a return would interest him... at some point.

With the midfield area being one of the most hotly talked about areas of the side that NEEDS strengthening Mark Hughes was reported to have made a late deadline day bid of £2 million to Birmingham City to try and lure the former England International back to Ewood Park. Dunn would say:

"I am a Blackburn fan, everyone knows that, and I think in the future maybe I would fancy it."

"The biggest thing for me is that I'm a bit of a home bird. I'm down here all week on my own; I would like to be back up near my family at some point, certainly near my little girl."

Such statements would hint that the Birmingham midfielder would jump at the chance to return to his former club, he would finish by taking a backwards step however:

"If you put anyone in that position, I think they would understand. It wouldn't be a financial thing, it wouldn't be a football thing, it would be purely and simply to be near my family and daughter."

"Not that I wanted to go when they came in. I wasn't trying to make it happen and I do want to stress I'm totally focused here at Birmingham."

"The transfer didn't come off, so I'm not really too worried about it."

The injury worries that have plagued the 26-year-old for most of his time at St Andrews since his £5.5 million move in 2003 are seen as the main reason a lot of fans would not want Dunn back at the club, another worry, as I pointed out when the deadline day bid was first spoken about would be the worry that returning to a former club isn`t always the best thing to do.

I would have had him back, simply because if he is a true blue like he continues to hark on about, he would never feel as though he has made it up to the fans, hence 110% everygame. Plus we all know the quality that he has when he's fully fit.

If you have players that want to play for the club they love and support they will often give that little extra. I'd not be in the least bit surprised to see him back at Ewood in January.

Yes, he seems to be hinting at a move sooner rather than later.

You don't say things like that if you don't want a move. I hope it doesn't, but these kind of comments would anger some Birmingham fans wouldn't they?

if you keep Dunn fit, which Hughes has done with the reszt of the squad then there should be no problems, he is a creative central midfielder and no offense to the team at the min, apart from Morton and sometimes Reid there's not a lot of goals from our midfielders, Dunn can do this, we have a hard working pair in the middle but it needs something to spark it
