Burnley determined to secure Dawson signing

Burnley have stepped up their pursuit of West Bromwich Albion defender Craig Dawson with a third bid, reports the Lancashire Telegraph.

The Clarets have already had bids of £1 million and £1.5 million rejected, with Albion reportedly holding out for at least £2 million, a price which Burnley may now be willing to pay.

Manager Sean Dyche is in the market for a new central defender, and seemingly has identified Dawson as his chief target. “It is a bit protracted with a couple of things, but sometimes that's the nature of how it is if you can't throw money everywhere,” said Dyche.

Dawson himself is rumoured to be desperate to secure a move away from The Hawthorns after seeing his first team opportunities become severely restricted.

The 24-year-old initially signed for the Baggies from his hometown club Rochdale in 2010, but has struggled to establish himself in the Albion line-up. To date he has only made 31 appearances in all competitions for West Brom, including just 13 starts last season.

Dawson, who represented Great Britain in the 2012 Olympic Games, played for West Brom in a pre-season friendly in California against Sacramento Albion this week. But it is thought he is considering putting in an official transfer request in to speed up the conclusion of the proposed move back to his native north west.
