Blackburn Rovers are keen to negotiate a coaching role with midfielder, David Dunn, with talks on-going regarding a renewed deal for the player.
Dunn has spent 14 years at Ewood Park over two spells at the club, and the Rovers are said to be eyeing a player-coach role for the 34-year-old. After a long tenure at the club, Blackburn have concluded that the time has come for the midfielder to take on further responsibilities at the club, something that they will attempt to agree in the veteran’s new contract.
Dunn told the Daily Mail: “I want to carry on playing and will be in contention for every game. If there is a possibility that this is my last season as a player then I want to make sure I get Blackburn back into the Premier League where they belong.
“It’s great to know Blackburn are thinking about me as a coach and want me to hang around, but I’ll keep contributing as a player until my body tells me not to.”
The midfielder will consider his options when the 2014/15 season ends, before making a decision with regard to his retirement.
