West Brom defender Craig Dawson still keen on joining Clarets

This Is Lancashire: Craig Dawson Craig Dawson

CRAIG Dawson is understood to be considering an official transfer request after Burnley had a second bid for the defender turned down by West Bromwich Albion.

The Clarets remain determined to bring Dawson to Turf Moor but saw a second offer rejected by the Midlands club earlier this week, just over a month after having their initial £1million offer knocked back.

MORE TOP STORIES:

Burnley’s latest bid is thought to have crept over the £1.5m mark but was met with a similar response from the Baggies, with new head coach Alan Irvine saying: “He’s not a player we want to lose.”

Dawson featured in West Brom’s first public friendly on Tuesday night – a 2-1 win at Shrewsbury – and is expected to be with the Baggies squad when they set off for their pre-season tour of America today.

But the 24-year-old centre back still wants to join Burnley, having previously been disappointed when he learned that the Clarets’ first bid had been turned down.

He made it clear at that point that he wanted to leave, but was told by West Brom that they wanted to keep him.

Dawson has grown frustrated at West Brom after making just 13 starts for the Baggies last season, three of those in the cup, and only 15 appearances in total.

It is believed that his eagerness to play regular Premier League football is so great that he is now giving serious consideration to reiterating his desire to leave by putting in an official transfer request at the Hawthorns.

Clarets boss Sean Dyche is unlikely to be deterred, either, by Irvine’s stance.

After Burnley’s second offer was rejected, Irvine added: “My first signing after I came in was Joleon Lescott – that was so we could have four centre-backs that I feel comfortable with.

“And right now we have four centre-backs I am comfortable with. I’m not wanting to lose any of those centre-backs. Craig is on the way up. He’s played for England under-21s, he’s 24-years-old and he’s not a player we want to lose.

“I think he will stay with us. He’s going with us to the States and it’ll take a very good bid for anyone to make the club accept it.

“He is an important player for us and if we were to lose Craig we would need to replace him because we would need another up-and-coming centre-half who has played in the Premier League and I’m not sure where you find those.”

Surely if he wants regular Premier League football he'd be better looking elsewhere? Bumley only have 38 games before the drop and he might not even get selected for all those if Duff isn't busy giving pleasure rides on Blackpool beach?

I realise that WBA don't want to lose Dawson, but why hold on to a player that clearly doesn't want to stay at a club. They should come out and say how much they want for him then sell him. Better for their dressing room in the end!

Has this got anything to do with Blackburn? No. But hey don't let that stop you dribbling your usual morning nonsense on it fool. Quality player would like to join a quality side. It's all about the direction of travel. We can offer young, talented, hungry players their chance. Blackburn simply have to pay PL wages to keep the 4th best striker in the championship, only by fly tipping and paying off others can they do that. Joke club joke fans, oozes envy does this idiot. Sunny over Turf Moor matey, open the curtains, go outside for a change. Share our happiness.

Burnley fc seem to be obsessed with taking players from clubs for next to nothing Which is good business sense but leaves the selling club short changed. You tried the same with Bryson and it didn't work !

Burnley had 3 main targets - Bryson, Deeney and Dawson.

We've already missed out on the first two and it will be 3 if we don't stop messing about and offer a proper fee....£2.5 million.

Baggies supporter here. The main reason Albion don't want to lose him is that our other three centre-backs are all over 30 and will probably be put out to graze in the next couple of years. Dawson has for some time been touted as 'the future' although, somewhat understandably, he sees himself as the present, being 24.

I think we probably would sell, reluctantly, if the offer was too good to refuse e.g. £2.5m upwards.

For the record, I still have my reservations about him as a Premier League defender. He excelled at under-21 level but for much of that time he was 22-23 playing alongside 18-20 year olds. There are some games where he's looked steady for us and others where, for me, he's not been anywhere near commanding enough in his own box. Perhaps that's something that comes with regular football, he certainly did well at Bolton when he had that.

Hello Warren, The problem for many players is the lack of regular first team football which is clearly what he is after. There are lots of good players languishing at prem clubs.
The signing of Lescott was obviously upsetting for the lad and is what probably makes him wish to leave. Sure you Baggies are happy at having an ex Wolves player as well. Like you I think there will be movement with a proper bid of £2.5m.

Ha ha ha ha - look where those Poundland items got us last season, six easy points off you mugs and 93 big fat points, thereby knocking you into the play-offs where you predictably lost to ten man QPR.

Wow, you have 20000 fans in your CITY with a population of 250k, you must be so proud, you are like a poor man's Leeds United.

No wonder you are sore at little old town-team Burnley finishing so far clear of your massive City club - I get it, Blackburn fans have the same hang-ups.

Don't worry about it, at least you finished above Forest.

Hi McClaret,

Albion have history of saying a player is not for sale in order to extract as much cash as possible, so as you say, there may well be movement.

I'd agree on the issue of first-team football, my concern with Dawson was losing aerial duels in his own penalty area, which you can't afford from your centre-backs really. Good luck for the coming season.

Dan the Ram - with all due respect mate, your claim that Derby offer 'the going rate' is a little bit fantasical I think. Your pursuit of Thorne bears unseeming parallels to Burnley's of Dawson, it would just seem now that yours is coming to a head first, probably because Albion have more midfielders than centre-backs. Your first offer of £950k was derisory for a probable future England international.

Also, not sure forking out more is a point-scoring weapon, particularly when your turnover is likely to be lot lower than Burnley's this coming season, would say it's more about balancing the books than spending the most, unless you've got an owner willing to subsidise the latter.

A sensible post at last,
No team wants to lose good players especially at knock down prices,
Derby are now going to pay the right price for a good player,

P.S. McClaret

The Lescott-Wolves thing seems to have been buried slightly because he's such a big signing, I'm sure it'll resurface pretty quickly if he has a couple of stinkers.

It seems to have upset them more than it has us, many for whom he was still held in high esteem and who expected that he might return to them later in his career, as that would be his dream in life, obviously.......

If a more disliked player than Lescott had crossed the divide, it may have been more of an issue!

Look, all joking aside, I hear what you are saying, but you can't use us as an example of Premier League buying, if anything we are actually an anomaly in the Premier League - we have no rich benefactor or company willing to bankroll us and willing to underwrite a massive spending spree, we simply have to spend what we earn.

We are well aware of what has happened to the likes of Blackburn (lol), Leeds, Blackpool, Portsmouth etc etc who all spent beyond their means and ended up in the clart. We cannot be spending £10 million for players or signing 28 year olds like Bryson on five year 25k a week contracts, because if the worse happens and we DO get relegated, we are stuck with a player that we simply cannot afford to retain.
Every other club in the top flight and a good majority of them in the Championship have owners willing to write off debts or convert them into equity etc etc, for us we have to spend what we have otherwise long term it is curtains for us as a club and Burnley Football Club is massively important in our town, so we have to look after it.

Are you a WBA fan?
Are you even a Burnley-obsessed Blackburn fan?

I personally couldn't give a monkey's about any transfer dealings that little old Derby do, so why do you care so much about ours?

Or are you still sore about the two spankings we gave you last season and the eight points that separated us at the end?

Move along, nothing to see here.
Derby fan through and through along with all the othe 20000 plus season ticket holders this season , not bad for a little club is it !
You seem a little defensive and haven't actually answered my question,
I suppose class is something you have which is what Derby are and we pay what it takes !
Keep on shopping in pound land !
Hi Dan, you see the problem on here is some think they own the place, just because me and you grasp this simple issue, my blue tattooed, no teeth, gunning shaved hill chimp Burnley supporting colleagues just don't get it.

Hi McClaret,

Albion have history of saying a player is not for sale in order to extract as much cash as possible, so as you say, there may well be movement.

I'd agree on the issue of first-team football, my concern with Dawson was losing aerial duels in his own penalty area, which you can't afford from your centre-backs really. Good luck for the coming season.

Dan the Ram - with all due respect mate, your claim that Derby offer 'the going rate' is a little bit fantasical I think. Your pursuit of Thorne bears unseeming parallels to Burnley's of Dawson, it would just seem now that yours is coming to a head first, probably because Albion have more midfielders than centre-backs. Your first offer of £950k was derisory for a probable future England international.

Also, not sure forking out more is a point-scoring weapon, particularly when your turnover is likely to be lot lower than Burnley's this coming season, would say it's more about balancing the books than spending the most, unless you've got an owner willing to subsidise the latter.
Thanks warren
A sensible post at last,
No team wants to lose good players especially at knock down prices,
Derby are now going to pay the right price for a good player,
I wish all teams the best even those fans who are so self absorbed they do not see the bigger picture ,
Look, all joking aside, I hear what you are saying, but you can't use us as an example of Premier League buying, if anything we are actually an anomaly in the Premier League - we have no rich benefactor or company willing to bankroll us and willing to underwrite a massive spending spree, we simply have to spend what we earn.

We are well aware of what has happened to the likes of Blackburn (lol), Leeds, Blackpool, Portsmouth etc etc who all spent beyond their means and ended up in the clart. We cannot be spending £10 million for players or signing 28 year olds like Bryson on five year 25k a week contracts, because if the worse happens and we DO get relegated, we are stuck with a player that we simply cannot afford to retain.
Every other club in the top flight and a good majority of them in the Championship have owners willing to write off debts or convert them into equity etc etc, for us we have to spend what we have otherwise long term it is curtains for us as a club and Burnley Football Club is massively important in our town, so we have to look after it.
Good points and well made,
The truth is that money has ruined football and ultimately means the likes of burnley , derby, west brom and Blackburn will never again challenge for major honours !
Salary cap would be my way forward and I quite like the American draft system where the lower teams get first choice of new players !
Look at Southampton ! Get a decent side and then the vultures come a long ! How can this be good for football ?
Thanks

Ha ha ha ha - look where those Poundland items got us last season, six easy points off you mugs and 93 big fat points, thereby knocking you into the play-offs where you predictably lost to ten man QPR.

Wow, you have 20000 fans in your CITY with a population of 250k, you must be so proud, you are like a poor man's Leeds United.

No wonder you are sore at little old town-team Burnley finishing so far clear of your massive City club - I get it, Blackburn fans have the same hang-ups.

Don't worry about it, at least you finished above Forest.
One feels you have small man syndrome !

Hi Dan,
Agree with this. I've been saying for ages now that the best thing for football in this country would be for Sky to pull the plug. It would cause a bit of a financial mess for a while but eventually sanity would be restored. They will eventually get out anyway in the longer term I think. Clubs would have to pay sensible wages and transfer fees and live far more within their means. At the moment the rich just keep on getting richer and the rest don't matter. We might even get back to playing football on Saturday afternoons. One thing I am NOT looking forward to in the prem is going to games on Sunday tea time and Saturday lunch or any other ridiculous time that Sky dictate.
Money isn't killing the game, it's all but destroyed it already as a competition and it's only going to get worse.
Best of luck for next season by the way, and make sure your lot give Rovers a thumping.

The Lescott-Wolves thing seems to have been buried slightly because he's such a big signing, I'm sure it'll resurface pretty quickly if he has a couple of stinkers.

It seems to have upset them more than it has us, many for whom he was still held in high esteem and who expected that he might return to them later in his career, as that would be his dream in life, obviously.......

If a more disliked player than Lescott had crossed the divide, it may have been more of an issue!
Agreed, think he will need to get off to a good start and good luck to him. He was known affectionately as halfhead where I live. Good luck for the season, I have you as one of the teams we need to take points from.

Cheers, same to you too. The conversation earlier on in the thread drifted onto money and I'd much rather the self-sufficient teams - of which there aren't many left in the PL, but includes both of us I guess - survived and made it competitive to a greater extent, than those sickeningly bankrolled by wealthy benefactors - West Ham, Stoke, QPR, Villa etc. We're both clubs with great heritage too.

In truth I don't think there's much between the clubs from about 8th down, Newcastle and Stoke were two of the worst sides we played last season yet finished 9th and 10th maybe? It comes down to very fine margins I think that often revolve around having a 10-15 a season goalscorer, a bit of belief and resolve, particularly when going 4, 5 and 6 games without a win, which it's quite easy to do as I'm sure you remember from last time.

Somebody above mentions supporter per head of the population. Fair point, think you also need to factor in number of local teams within x mile radius. The north-west teams, in their defence, have Manchesters United and City, Liverpool and Everton within 50 miles; Newcastle and Sunderland have about 80 miles to themselves. Here in the West Midlands we have a big local population but West Bromwich, a similar-sized town to Burnley, is sandwiched in between Walsall, Birmingham and Wolverhampton (who have South Staffs and Shropshire to themselves, "massive" club though), with 3 fairly big clubs and another smaller team within an 8-mile radius. The dynamics seems to vary upon region, but those differences make our teams what they are I guess.

Burnley fc seem to be obsessed with taking players from clubs for next to nothing Which is good business sense but leaves the selling club short changed. You tried the same with Bryson and it didn't work !
The feeling I get is that your fans are happy with this and you feel that player power is a good thing !
I wonder how many of your fans would have the same opinion when Ings leave for next to nothing at the end of this season when actually worth a lot more , you reap what you sow !
What exactly has this got to do with you?

Why don't you run along and concentrate on your own piddling little Second Division club.

Thanks
A little touchy on this topic are we?
Actually I was making a fair point !
We are in talks with another west brom player George Thorne and are looking to pay them what he is worth . I would imagine 2.5 million would do it !
We may be a league below you and I hope we are both in the promised last the following season !
You might be a premier league club today but all your offers are more familiar to a championship/ league 1 outfit !
No, I just wonder why you are commenting on a story that has literally nothing whatsoever to do with you:

Are you a Burnley fan?
Are you a WBA fan?
Are you even a Burnley-obsessed Blackburn fan?

I personally couldn't give a monkey's about any transfer dealings that little old Derby do, so why do you care so much about ours?

Or are you still sore about the two spankings we gave you last season and the eight points that separated us at the end?

Move along, nothing to see here.
Derby fan through and through along with all the othe 20000 plus season ticket holders this season , not bad for a little club is it !
You seem a little defensive and haven't actually answered my question,
I suppose class is something you have which is what Derby are and we pay what it takes !
Keep on shopping in pound land !
Derby population: 248,700
Derby average Attendance: 24,933

Burnley FC are better supported than both Blackburn Rovers and Derby County. Per head population Burnley FC are one of the best supported clubs in the country.

Burnley beat Derby home and away, scoring 5 and conceding 0. Burnley also beat Blackburn away. Burnley are in the Premier League.

Guess that shuts you up.
Blimey, good stats those and then when you consider of those 76033 the head being given by their respective sisters and therefore unable to attend, Bumley must be really well supported.

Could you not just have summed it up as "Bumley is a small town and there's simply nothing else to do in this cess pit".
Burnley FC are better supported than both Blackburn Rovers and Derby County. Per head population Burnley FC are one of the best supported clubs in the country.

FACT.
I can't really argue this as it's such an unsubstantiated and in any case worthless claim. Do you know the figures for Bala Town or maybe Berwick Rangers? Either way, the one thing certain from these figures is Bumley have no solid foundation with this level of 'support' and cannot survive in the Prem or even the Championship. Make the most of next season. I will.

Cheers, same to you too. The conversation earlier on in the thread drifted onto money and I'd much rather the self-sufficient teams - of which there aren't many left in the PL, but includes both of us I guess - survived and made it competitive to a greater extent, than those sickeningly bankrolled by wealthy benefactors - West Ham, Stoke, QPR, Villa etc. We're both clubs with great heritage too.

In truth I don't think there's much between the clubs from about 8th down, Newcastle and Stoke were two of the worst sides we played last season yet finished 9th and 10th maybe? It comes down to very fine margins I think that often revolve around having a 10-15 a season goalscorer, a bit of belief and resolve, particularly when going 4, 5 and 6 games without a win, which it's quite easy to do as I'm sure you remember from last time.

Somebody above mentions supporter per head of the population. Fair point, think you also need to factor in number of local teams within x mile radius. The north-west teams, in their defence, have Manchesters United and City, Liverpool and Everton within 50 miles; Newcastle and Sunderland have about 80 miles to themselves. Here in the West Midlands we have a big local population but West Bromwich, a similar-sized town to Burnley, is sandwiched in between Walsall, Birmingham and Wolverhampton (who have South Staffs and Shropshire to themselves, "massive" club though), with 3 fairly big clubs and another smaller team within an 8-mile radius. The dynamics seems to vary upon region, but those differences make our teams what they are I guess.
Again think what you are saying is spot on except there are a lot more Lancashire clubs than you mention. Last time round in the prem we also had Bolton. Wigan and Blackburn which are all on our doorstep, not to mention Preston and Blackpool. Always makes me laugh when fans like the Geordies and Leeds say they are well supported when they are a one club city.
Always enjoyed playing the baggies, as you say a 'Real' club.

Baggies supporter here. The main reason Albion don't want to lose him is that our other three centre-backs are all over 30 and will probably be put out to graze in the next couple of years. Dawson has for some time been touted as 'the future' although, somewhat understandably, he sees himself as the present, being 24.

I think we probably would sell, reluctantly, if the offer was too good to refuse e.g. £2.5m upwards.

For the record, I still have my reservations about him as a Premier League defender. He excelled at under-21 level but for much of that time he was 22-23 playing alongside 18-20 year olds. There are some games where he's looked steady for us and others where, for me, he's not been anywhere near commanding enough in his own box. Perhaps that's something that comes with regular football, he certainly did well at Bolton when he had that.
Hello Warren, The problem for many players is the lack of regular first team football which is clearly what he is after. There are lots of good players languishing at prem clubs.
The signing of Lescott was obviously upsetting for the lad and is what probably makes him wish to leave. Sure you Baggies are happy at having an ex Wolves player as well. Like you I think there will be movement with a proper bid of £2.5m.
Correct McClaret. The local rag down there recon that West Brom will come to the table once a bid of £2.5 mill is recieved. They've called the latest offer 'derisory'.

Yeah we are proud of being the best supported club per head of population IN THE COUNTRY - why shouldn't we be? No need to be sore just because you only manage to persuade a measly 10% of your City's population to attend your home games.

Good luck in your attempts to get promoted out of the 'Hardest league in the world', (Little old Burnley have managed it twice in the last five seasons) I used to have a lot of time for Derby and their fans because you haven't spent a lot of money and tried to buy your way promotion. However the attitude of muppets like you and the cockends that posted on the ClaretsMad website prior to our games against you last season made me laugh uncontrollably when you got beat in the Play-Offs.

That is the stark reality of modern footballers. let him go if his hearts not in it. when you really analyse it every modern player has the last say due to contractual reasons its all about players and agents not managers or clubs. Its a wonder we still tolerate such antics when we are being fleeced every season with ticket prices being hiked and constant new kits coming along. Lets face it we are being mugged every season.
