Rovers Still Keen On Old Boy

Last updated : 16 January 2007 By Sam
Bolton Wanderers have had a bid accepted for the former Rovers midfielder and have held talks with Dunn but chief executive John Williams has confirmed that Rovers are still pursuing the midfielder who left Ewood Park for St Andrew's three-and-a-half years ago for £5.5million.

"We remain interested in David Dunn," Williams has said.

"We are unique in the Premiership as a small-town club and I think having a local lad in the side would add value.

"You cannot say having a local boy returning would increase attendances but I think the fans would value having him at Rovers.

"The question now is if we feel we want to match Birmingham's valuation. Otherwise, we will have to pass."

Dunn moved to St Andrew's from Rovers for a £5.5million fee in 2003 but has struggled with injuries over that period which has restricted him into making just 53 starts for Blues in three-and-a-half seasons.
