Scott Dann[1] (born 14 February 1987 in Liverpool) is an English professional footballer who joined Birmingham City in June 2009, having previously played in the Football League for Walsall and Coventry City.


Playing career



Dann joined Walsall in 2003 as a junior after impressing on trial at the Bescot Stadium, signing a professional contract with the Saddlers the following year. He moved up the ranks at Walsall to become a regular in the reserve team throughout 2004-05 and was allowed to join Danish side Køge BK on loan towards the end of the campaign.

Dann then joined Conference North side Redditch United on loan in October 2005 initially until the end of the season, but he was recalled in January 2006. He then Joined Redditch's league rivals Hednesford Town on loan following injuries to their regular centre backs Richard Teesdale and Ian Wright. He played in three games for the Pitmen against Hucknall Town, Stafford Rangers and Lancaster City before injury put an end to his loan spell at Keys Park. He returned to Walsall and was put on a short-term contract for the 2006-07 season, where he has earned his place in the starting line-up with a number of excellent performances at the back. His season was ended in March 2007 after picking up a metatarsal injury in the live Sky game against MK Dons.

As reward for his outstanding season for the Saddlers, who were promoted as League Two Champions, Dann was given a three year contract to commit him to the club and to ward off interest from a number of clubs higher up in the league.

Coventry City

His form in League One was equally as impressive as the previous season, so it was little surprise that in January 2008 Dann joined Coventry for an undisclosed fee. His impressive form for the Saddlers continued in the Championship for the Sky Blues alongside former Walsall team-mate Daniel Fox, who had also moved to the Ricoh Arena. He helped the club narrowly avoid relegation. The England set-up had seen enough in Dann and Fox to decide they were ready to make the step up to international level, with both players making their U-21 debuts in March 2008 against Poland at Molineux.

On 4 August 2008 it was announced that Dann would captain Coventry City for the 2008-09 season.[2]

Birmingham City

Dann signed for Birmingham City on 12 June 2009 for an undisclosed fee, described as a "club record fee for a defender";[3] local press reports suggest the fee to be in the region of £3.5 million with a possible increase to £4 million with performance based add ons.[4][5][6] He was allocated the squad number 15, last worn by Radhi Jaidi.

Dann made his Premier League bow in Birmingham's 1-0 away win over Hull City on 19 September 2009. He was an integral part of the defence alongside Roger Johnson which managed to keep a clean sheet.[7] He scored his first goal for Birmingham against Derby County in the FA Cup on 13 February 2010.[8]
