’50 million’ West Bromwich Albion fans react to that transfer rumour
The Sun claimed the beaten FA Cup finalists have identified Dawson as a target as they look to add an experienced British defender to their ranks.
Burnley are also said to be sniffing around the 29-year-old after Albion’s failure to win promotion back to the Premier League at the first attempt.
Dawson made 45 appearances last season and has played 225 games since he arrived from Rochdale nine years ago.
Dawson’s future was the subject of speculation last summer too when he seemed set to move to Turf Moor, only to remain at The Hawthorns.
This is what Albion fans feel about his situation now.
@MAF79: I’m personally not fussed regards Dawson’s pending departure their were more bang average performances on show last season than decent ones IMO I just hope we get a decent price for his services
Amoco46: 50 million incoming!!
@robwilliams93: Gotta say I don’t get the hate for Craig Dawson. If he goes he should be remembered for the 9 years he has been here clocking up nearly 200 appearances. Guy wanted a move to the PL last summer, can anyone blame him when he was one of the better performers under Pulis/Pardew?
@graeme_brown: It seems to have become a truism that Dawson is c***. I think he was probably overrated in the Pulis era but he suffered from terrible management of the side both off the ball and in it last season. He’s a capable centre half in a team where the midfield competes
@Revanche89: He is a solid player who I think would excel with better players around him.
@andywba1981: If genuine please let him go. His time is up. We need to move on and start a fresh
@Martw90: If Watford want Dawson I would let him go he didn’t look interested last season £10m and he’s yours
@WallHallNumber5: Crazy stage of the season when fans start name calling footballers who look 4 more money & higher level football. It’s daft talk. There is next 2 no loyalty these days & it’s a short career. Thank them & **** em off and cash-in Only want those who want 2 be here
@_Simonian: Less said about Dawson the better I think
@AshRamian: After the season Dawson’s just had I wouldn’t be sorry to see him go.
@Carpenterdf: To be fair of all the ‘high profile’ players likely to leave this summer Dawson is the one I’m least fussed about losing. Sure he’s good but also easily the most replaceable even on a tight budget
@ouestlesamuel: If we can get any sort of decent fee for Dawson I’d quite happily see him go. No doubt a great club servant but we need a factory reset and he’s part of the old guard. Let’s be honest he hasn’t play well for a while either
Luke Dandy: Sell him for the right price
Mitchell Wba Worrall: Take the money and run lol
John Russell: Let’s have a bidding war
