Manager Steve Kean revealed his delight at Dunn's new deal on the club's official website: "Everyone knows that not only is David Blackburn Rovers through and through, but he remains a top player and a key member of our squad.

"He has been at the top of his game over recent weeks and we are all delighted to see him extend his association with the club."

Dunn's association with Blackburn goes back to when he was in their youth scheme, the central midfielder making his debut for the first team in September 1998 against Everton.

He left to join Birmingham City in 2003 and spent four years at St Andrews, before returning to the north-west and Rovers for a second spell at the club.

Dunn has made 257 Barclays Premier League appearances for Blackburn over his two spells, scoring 44 goals in the process.

This season he has played 15 League matches, scoring in the 3-1 victory at home against Fulham on 14th January.

Dunn has also been capped once by England, coming on as a substitute in the friendly against Portugual in September 2002.
