Doncaster go for Villa duo Dunne, Given

Doncaster Rovers are lining up a double raid on Aston Villa.

The People says Doncaster are lining up a double swoop for veterans Shay Given and Richard Dunne - with the help of a mystery backer.

The Championship new boys are prepared to pay the Irish duo big wages.

Given is available on loan at Villa where he is sitting on a £60,000-a-week ­contract. Doncaster would pay a chunk of that salary.

Centre half Dunne is a free agent and will also be ­offered a mega-deal. Doncaster supremo John Ryan hopes to conclude a behind-the-scenes deal first. Insiders reveal an Irish group, with horse-racing ­interests, have their eyes on Rovers.
