Dawson says no to Portugal trip
West Brom defender Craig Dawson has been the subject of an offer from Burnley with it also reported last week that the Baggies have turned down a £12 million offer from West Ham for him.
Dawson, it was speculated, could ask for a transfer if necessary, but it now looks as if he and goalkeeper Ben Foster have taken matters into their own hands by refusing to travel with the squad to a training camp in Portugal.
Both players will be fined but the big surprise is Foster who said in April: “I’ll be here. I’ve got no interest in trying to move clubs. I’m very settled and I’m sure there are quite a few others who would love to stay and help us get back to the Premier League.” Since, Watford, a former club, have shown an interest.
The report suggests several players have been trying to seek clarity over the club’s direction with four players already having left and no one, as yet, having signed. In the most recent development, technical consultant Giuliano Terraneo has been removed from transfer negotiations.
It is believed that Jay Rodriguez, another Burnley target, has travelled to Portugal. As yet, there have been no reports of any stolen taxis.Share this page :
