Star centre-back completes Blackburn medical

It’s understood that Birmingham defender, Scott Dann, has completed a medical at Ewood Park, before finalising a transfer to Rovers.

Dann was being associated with a number of top Premier League clubs including Liverpool and Arsenal, but a move to either of those clubs failed to materialise.

Blackburn are expected to pay an initial fee of £6m to cash-strapped Birmingham City, with that sum possibly rising to £8m.

Birmingham are being forced to get rid of some of their players on bigger wages due to the freezing of owner Carson Yeung’s funds whilst his Hong Kong trial conyinues.
