BURNLEY have had a third bid rejected for West Bromwich Albion defender Craig Dawson.

The Clarets returned with another offer this week, understood to be in the region of £2m, after seeing two previous bids turned down.

Dawson is believed to be keen on moving to Turf Moor but West Brom have again rejected the latest offer from Burnley for the centre back.

Sources in the West Midlands suggest other clubs are also tracking Dawson and may be prepared to pay more than the Clarets' latest offer.

The 24-year-old has been one of Sean Dyche's key summer targets and the Clarets must now decide whether they are willing to up their offer once more.
