Old Trafford boss eyes up promising St Andrews’ youngster.
Manchester United are rumoured to be interested in Birmingham City centre back Scott Dann as Sir Alex Ferguson continues to looks to bring in talented young to Old Trafford. The 23 year old arrived by Coventry City last June and has been an instant hit at St Andrews’ where he has formed a solid partnership with Roger Johnson.
Having seen his side stumble to draws at Fulham and Everton, Ferguson is apparently anxious about his side’s defensive frailties and with Rio Ferdinand struggling with persistent injuries and Jonny Evans making some schoolboy errors of late, a move for Dann is reportedly a possibility.
With Dann and Taylor as the basis of his side’s back line, Alex McLeish is likely to fight off any potential interest in the Liverpool born former England Under 21 international but if reported interest results in an actual bid then the highly rated centre back may have his head turned.
Scott Dann is thought to be valued around the £8m mark but it would take a more sizeable bid to prize the powerfully build battler away from the Midlands side.
