It looks like Blackburn Rovers could miss out to Premiership rivals Bolton Wanderers in bringing David Dunn back to Ewood Park?

For the past few weeks it has been believed that Dunn’s Rovers Return was all but sorted with him almost certain to be welcomed back to Ewood for a fee between £1 and £2 million.

In the past week Bolton and Manchester City had both been rumoured to have entered the race, with Bolton now agreeing to pay Birmingham City a knockdown £1 million with talks taking place this weekend. Speaking on the official Bolton website Sam Allardyce said:

We are talking to his representatives at the moment, that’s the furthest we’ve got. We shall see how it goes on over the next 24 hours.

David had a very severe back problem a couple of years ago. That’s been dealt with by surgery.

Steve at Birmingham has decided to move him on for whatever reason and our concern would be the medical.

After the medical, as long as the financial negotiations continue, we can get to a conclusion on that. I hope there’s nothing from the medical side to stop this transfer.”

Whether on not Rovers will look to counter this remains to be seen but at the moment Dunny looks to be coming home… but not to Rovers, our local rivals Bolton…
