Dunn In Cut Price Bolton Move

Dunn In Cut Price Bolton Move

David Dunn is likely to sign for Bolton in a knockdown £1 million deal shortly.

Even Sam Allardyce has said that only a medical hitch will stop the deal from going through after both clubs agreed the fee.

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

'Steve Bruce has decided to move him on and our concern would be the medical. I hope there's nothing from the medical side to stop this transfer.'

Steve Bruce said:

'He has problems with his family life up north. That is genuine.

'So it might be in both our interests that I get a few quid in, spend it on someone else and then off we go again. It will be an amicable goodbye.

'It's a shame Dunny has had so many injury problems here because he is a special player, someone who is part of a dying breed, and in his first few months here you saw the influence he can have on a team.

'If people like Dunny, Mikael Forssell, Muzzy Izzet and Matthew Upson had stayed fit last season, we would have been a far better team and I am convinced we would have stayed in the Premiership.

'The club has spent millions on Dunny, buying him, trying to get him right, trying to get him on the pitch. He is also a decent wage earner. A change of scenery might do him good.'
