GREAT HARWOOD midfielder David Dunn has returned home - signing a deal until 2010 back at Premier side Blackburn Rovers.
Rovers made a late swoop for the 27-year-old who was on the verge of signing for Bolton from Championship side Birmingham on Wednesday.
And Dunn said there was only one club for him once the Ewood Park outfit showed interest.
"It feels really good to be back," Dunn told the Rovers' website.
"I'm glad it is all done and I'm back at Blackburn.
"I am back here at the club I have always supported and, as soon as Blackburn came in for me, my mind was made up."
Dunn, after playing for local junior teams, came through the ranks at Ewood Park, making his debut in 1998.
He made 169 appearances for Rovers scoring 38 goals before making a £5.5m move to Birmingham in 2003, after falling out of favour with then manager Graeme Souness.
He has had an injury-plagued time at St Andrews but has vowed to come back hungrier and stronger at Ewood.
Dunn, while at Birmingham, still watched Accrington Stanley and visited Great Harwood Cricket Club, the team he used to play for.
