Harry Redknapp reveals game which ended Scott Dann's hopes to join Arsenal
“We played a game at the training ground one day and the chief scout of Arsenal, Steve Rowley rung up and asked if he could watch the game with Pat Rice,” Redknapp says.
“They were really looking at Scott Dann who was playing with Birmingham, Arsenal wanted to sign him. He just wanted to check his fitness. He had already agreed terms with the club, I think.
“He came over to our training ground to watch this U-21 game. You could play over-age players. Scott Dann was playing in this game and Harry scored four goals that day against him.
“Arsenal didn't take Scott Dann, but Harry scored four goals.”
Scott Dann has been a Palace player since 2014. The centre-back scored 12 goals in 123 appearances for the club.
