Bryan Boulaye Kevin Dabo (born 18 February 1992 in Marseille) is a French-Malian footballer who plays as a midfielder for Montpellier in the Ligue 1. However he is currently on loan at Blackburn Rovers until the end of the season.[2][3]

Montpellier[edit]

He made his debut on 16 May 2010 in a 3-1 win against Paris Saint-Germain coming as a 84th minute substitute for Geoffrey Dernis.[4] He made his first start against Bastia. [5]

Blackburn Rovers (loan)[edit]

On 28 January 2014, Dabo signed for Blackburn Rovers who plays in Championship on loan with an option of a permanent deal. Manager Gary Bowyer said, "He's a positive lad, both on and off the pitch and he brings a different dimension to what we have already got in midfield. He can run forward, he can attack the space very well, he can receive the ball under pressure and we are hoping that he settles in quickly and that he'll be someone that can excite the fans."[6] He was an unused substitute in a 2-0 win against Blackpool.[7] He, then played full 90 minutes for Blackburn Rovers U21 against Tottenham U21.[8]
