Canaries increase their offer for wantaway Rovers goalkeeper Bunn

MARK Bunn is looking to force a move out of Ewood Park after Premier League Norwich City upped their bid for the goalkeeper yesterday.

Blackburn Rovers ’ reserve stopper has handed in a transfer request as he looks for permission to speak to the Canaries – after they had a first bid for less than £500,000 rejected last week.

Rovers are now considering Norwich’s new bid for the former Northampton man, understood to be closer to £1million, and are expected to make their decision today.

Bunn is keen to quit Ewood Park as he fears playing second fiddle behind Paul Robinson between the posts again this campaign.

The 27-year-old has been restricted to just six league appearances for Rovers since signing in 2008 and expects to continue as second choice this campaign.

Bunn knows he would also be signing for Norwich as a reserve, behind England international John Ruddy, but the lure of a return to the Premier League appears to be enough to tempt him.

It is understood he would be have been happy to remain at Ewood Park had he expected to be the club's first choice this season but, with Robinson still ahead of him, is seeking a new challenge.

Rovers feared they would struggle to keep both Robinson and Bunn happy as a Championship club this season, with both wanting to play regular football.

They were last night left considering Norwich's offer and Bunn's transfer request. Meanwhile, midfielder Radosav Petrovic is still expected to seal a permanent move to Turkish outfit Genclerbirligi, as Rovers wait for an answer on their third bid for Huddersfield striker Jordan Rhodes.

Ho-hum,not seen much of young kean the keeper but read good reviews about him, so hopefully WHEN Bunn escapes the cirucus he'll do well. Would have liked to see Bunn given a run in the first team though.

Good luck to the lad, as at 27 he is not getting any younger and if he is going to sit on a bench then I suppose a prem league bench is better than a Championship one!

Not sure how much of a 'desire to play' that shows from him though? Maybe if he really wanted to play then he could have made it known he wanted out and gone to a club where he could have been first choice.

HAH!
Alright then Bunn.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Couple of good games as a stand-in and he gets a big head.

He'll be found out when he's given a proper run of games.

Not at all, sir.

I've just seen more than enough of Bunn to realise that he's nowhere near good enough for our first team.

If he thinks he's better than being Rovers number 2, then more fool him.

..there is little point to this story, Bunn wants out to sit on a yellow bench as oppose to blue and white...that's it...million pound, thank you...another Shay Given let go..who knows, but lets face it Robbo staying is not such a bad thing, we have more concerns should any of our defenders leave, I have a feeling any 'backup' plans for this area of concern belong in the million and one Portuguese signings! As a work collegue said supporting Notts Forest, it will be difficult remaining in this league let alone getting out of it...unless down to Div 1.

He lied at Diouff!! He said everyone wanted him out of the country, yet he signs him for Leeds!

This is therefore lies.

What do they do with Liers in middle eastern countries?

Sorry, but I have to agree. Bunn had a couple of decent games then got designs of grandeur. Jason Brown was another one and he is now on his 4th club in 2 years. Robbo will be number one for 2-3 years at least and we are lucky to have a keeper of his quality!

Lucky to still have Robbo, lowest saves to shots ratio of any keeper in the league last season. Far and away the worst keeper in the premier league last year, contributed to us getting relegated.

Appalling in the air, never comes for crosses, and the defence is not confident with him in goal. Counter that to the performances of Mark Bunn and our defence looked far better, because he actually came for crosses and commanded his penalty area.
