A Dunn Deal, But Where?
Could it be the longing running saga surrounding the prodigal son is about to be finalised? Well perhaps not.
A lot of talk had surfaced before Christmas linking the one time fans favourite and England international with a return to Ewood Park, made all the more likely after Steve Bruce claimed he would be prepared to let the 5.5 million signing leave.
Many expected the transfer to be formalised when the transfer window opened after words emanating from Mark Hughes himself suggested a move was forthcoming.
Yet we find ourselves two weeks into the window and Dunn is still in the West Midlands. Fresh rumours last week indicated that Bolton were interested and would be making an offer. Over the weekend, after a Bolton bid believed to be in the region of 1 million was accepted, it looked as though Dunn would indeed be returning to Lancashire, but with the wrong club.
However, a fresh twist has emerged. After Dunn completed a rigorous medical at The Reebok Stadium, Rovers have once again been credited with strong interest. The Lancashire Evening Telegraph has reported that Rovers have been in negotiations with Birmingham in order to reach a compromise over the fee.
The delay derives from Rovers` reluctance to pay the majority of the figure up front and instead they are proposing a number of additional bonuses.
This isn`t to the liking of the Birmingham chiefs who are eager to recuperate as much up front as possible. That coupled with the clubs well publicised dislike of Blackburn Rovers may be the stumbling block.
A bid of 1 million by Bolton has been accepted, I just wonder if they are asking more from Rovers.
Either way it would appear David Dunn will be moving back to Lancashire very soon, but to which club?
