The Man City captain has been a long-term target of Keegan's who is keen to add to his defensive options come the opening of the summer transfer window.

The pair worked together at Man City when Keegan was manager their four years ago and it is rumoured today that Keegan will offer Man City as much as £8 million for the Republic of Ireland defender.

I am a Man City fan myself and I would be devastated to see Dunne leave. He is a terrific player and it doesn't surprise me to see a side like Newcastle interested. The 28-year old has been with the Blues for over 7 years now since leaving Everton back in 2000.
