Stephen Dawson?
The Championship's three relegated teams, Blackburn Rovers, Wigan Athletic and Rotherham United, are in talks with Scunthorpe United captain Stephen Dawson, The Sun reports [15 May Goals pullout, page 15].

Diminutive midfielder Dawson played 43 times as Scunthorpe reached the League One play-offs in 2016-17, and would be an asset to any side fighting for promotion to the Championship next term.

The Irishman previously spent time at Blackburn and Wigan's Lancashire rivals Rochdale
Not happening, he's gone to Bury instead.

Just had to check which League Bury were in, I'm slowly realising I've got no idea which teams are League 1 and which are League 2...

I felt that way about the championship to be honest.

I'm not so sure, Hudson. Blackburn Rovers could be boss of League 1. Of course, if we lose what few remaining quality players we have, Mowbray could be battling to stay in the top half.

I will be optimistic, & say Rovers finish in playoffs in League 1. Y'all can call me a no-account sunshine-pumper when I'm wrong! :lol:

Nevermind, then. I guess this doesn't qualify for discussion.

Oh it does, but transfer discussion must always come with a healthy dose of sarcasm, ridicule, cynicism and filthy Alan Noxin jibes.
