Birmingham midfielder David Dunn admits he 'would certainly have to consider' a return to Blackburn if his hometown club attempted to sign him in the January transfer window.
Dunn has failed to deliver on his potential in the West Midlands with injuries blighting his time at St Andrews since joining the club from Rovers in 2003.
The former England international, who has made only 11 appearances for Birmingham this season, said family issues could convince him to return to the club he left after falling out with former Blackburn manager Graeme Souness.
'I'm a Blackburn fan and always have been so who knows, one day it might happen,' he told Sky Sports News. 'Whether that comes sooner or later is down to the two clubs, whichever club it may be.
'I would certainly have to consider it. All my family and friends are up there, the most important thing for me is my little girl who lives up in the north, and that would make that a lot easier for me to see her.'
Last year former Wales midfielder Robbie Savage made the move from Birmingham to Blackburn citing family reasons.
