Official: Blackburn Rovers sign Scott Dann on a four-year deal

Blackburn Rovers defender completes switch to Ewood Park for a £6 million fee rising to £8 million, despite being linked with moves to Arsenal and Liverpool

Blackburn have completed the signing of Birmingham City defender Scott Dann for a £6 million fee, potentially rising to £8 million.

The 24-year-old centre-back had long been linked with a move away from St Andrew’s in the summer transfer window, with Liverpool and Arsenal touted as possible destinations.

However, Dann has now completed his switch to Ewood Park, as manager Steve Kean looks to bolster his squad before Wednesday evening’s deadline.

The former Coventry City man joins at Simon Vukcevic and Radosav Petrovic amongst Kean’s new signings at Blackburn.
