The player, who is now valued at £3.15 million (as per Transfermarkt), was purchased by Palace during the 2014 January transfer window for just £1.64 million. He made the move from Blackburn Rovers and has since made 159 appearances for the Eagles.
Needless to say, when Palace fans shared their opinions of the player, the reviews were almost all positive.
They admit that he has earned legend status at the club and will always be remembered for his goals, despite being a centre-back. Here are a few of the fans’ responses.

What do we think?
In his 159 appearances for Palace, Dann has scored 15 goals and assisted seven from the centre-back position. In the entirety of his career, Dann has played in 441 club matches, scoring himself 37 goals.
It is statistics like these that have earned him a great reputation with the Palace faithful, as was so brilliantly demonstrated by the fan responses above.
