Bolton close on Dawson deal

23 January 2013 02:24

Bolton are understood to have won the race to sign England Under-21 defender Craig Dawson on loan from West Brom.

The 22-year-old stopper has not featured much at West Brom since Steve Clarke took charge, but the Baggies boss is a fan of the player and has ruled out a permanent departure.

West Brom opted for a loan deal, which subsequently attracted interest from nearly a dozen Championship clubs.

But Sky Sports understands that Dawson is set to finalise a switch to the Reebok Stadium before this weekend's FA Cup clash with Everton - but he would not be eligible as he is already cup-tied.
