The one-cap England international is now 34 years of age and has endured his fair share of injuries in recent times.

He was, however, able to make 24 appearances in a 2013/14 campaign disrupted by a double knee operation.

Dunn feels that return proves that he is still capable of holding his own at a Championship level.

Fresh terms at Ewood Park, taking him into a 14th season with his home-town club, have been mooted, but for now the talented midfielder is keeping all of his options open.

Dunn said in the Lancashire Telegraph: “I want to keep playing.

“I felt my form last season was pretty good so while my body still feels up to playing, I want to focus on that.

“I’ve done my A licence and coaching is something I’ll look to do in the future, but I certainly feel I’ve still got to offer a lot as a player.

“And if I can play another 20-odd games next season, and my body still feels up to it, I would like to carry on after that.”

Dunn will officially become a free agent on June 30, but Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer has expressed a desire to keep him on past that point.

He said in May: “I want to keep him.

“I think everybody knows my opinion on David Dunn and what he is to Blackburn Rovers.”

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
