No-Go for Dawson, says Dougie

More transfer talk from the mouth of the manager

Michael Steele

The Bolton News has today reported that Craig Dawson is no closer to returning to the club following on his from his successful loan spell in the 2012/13 season:

"I've made no contact with them (West Brom) since the beginning of the season, or just after.

They said to me he (Dawson) is not coming out on loan and he's going to be in the squad every week, and he has been.

I have spoken to his agent and he tells me Craig is very, very determined to make it in the West Brom side, so therefore I've not wasted a lot of energy running after that one. It feels like it's far away.

He's a loan player who came in and credit to the scouting department because he was fantastic for us, just the same as Neil Danns or Kevin McNaughton.

If it does change then, well, who wouldn't be interested?"

Dawson joined the Whites in January 2013 under manager Dougie Freedman who fought off reported interest from Blackburn Rovers, Leicester City, Leeds United and this weekend's opponents Nottingham Forest.

He made a huge impact in Wanderers' late surge towards the Play Offs, scoring twice in a 4-1 win against Hull City and just three days later scoring the only goal in a 1-0 home win against Peterborough United.

He scored for the third successive match on 2 March, scoring the winning goal in a 3-2 win against Barnsley.

Come on Craig, and come on WBA, you know it makes sense.
