Competition for Newcastle United

Blackburn are in the Championship, and Newcastle being in the Premier League will surely appeal to Rovers than the central defender.

The Magpies are an established club in the top flight of English football, and Dann will be a good signing for Newcastle.

Newcastle could do with an experienced central defender, and the former Coventry City and Birmingham City star would make Newcastle’s backline better.

However, Dann is a former Blackburn player and was on the books of Rovers from 2011 until 2014, and returning to Ewood Park could be an emotional decision for him.
