David Dunn Comes Home

David Dunn Comes Home

After months of speculation David Dunn finally returned to Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday Evening.

Having left for Birmingham City in 2003 for £5.5 million Dunn returned to Ewood Park on Wednesday for an undisclosed fee signing a three-and-a-half year contract when it looked as though we could miss out to Bolton Wanderers earlier in the week after he passed a medical and was well on the road to agreeing terms. But the former England International was going nowhere else but back to Ewood once Rovers confirmed an interest. Speaking to the official Rovers website Dunn said:

"It feels really good to be back, it has been a hectic week, but I'm glad it is all done and I'm back in Blackburn.

"I am back here at the club I've always supported. As soon as Blackburn came in for me my mind was made up.

"I am really pleased now that it has all come to a head and I've signed that piece of paper."

I think his re-signing casts asides any doubts that he ever had any doubts about coming home, and now that he is back home he is looking forward to working with Mark Hughes and the lads, he added:

"I think the manager has done a great job here with his staff, he has brought in some great players and I can't wait.

"I'm really looking forward to joining up with them tomorrow and getting back to what I do best."

Dunn has had pretty much three-years of injury nightmare so lets hope these are fully behind him and we see him stay injury free showing those that haven't seen him before, and reaffirming to those of us that have just why Sparky wanted to bring you back. You don't get much better than a fit Dunny, if he can remain just that (this is my biggest concern!) he could prove an inspired re-signing...

Welcome home Dunny!

A fully fit Dunny is as good as anyone... lets hope we see more of Dunny on the pitch than in the treatment room!!! Sparky doesn't get much wrong so you have to believe he has genuinely belief that Dunny is over his injury nightmares. Obviously you can't foresee injury but if there was a chance of constant repitition of previous injuries he wouldn't have taken a risk would he?

It will be good to see him back in a Rovers shirt, Hughes has been credited with building a very good backroom staff at the club and apart from the longterm injuries we seem to be quite good at keeping players on the pitch, so I do think we will see Dunn back at his best, with Hughes as his manager anyway

He's back!!!! Fantastic, clubs are bidding up to 10 million for Ashley Young and Dunn is twice the player he is. If he can stay fit this deal screams bargain!!!! Bet your happy HDM.

I'm not unhappy that for sure. My ONLY doubts are about his ability to remain injury free. You can say that about any signing but one with such a history of injury it has to leave you with this.

He is the ideal man to fill in reid's place. He brings very similar attributes to the team that Reid does and adds a lot of drive which is missing from Rovers play at the moment.
