Wolves are in the hunt to sign West Brom defender Craig Dawson, according to a report.

The Mirror claims that West Ham and Burnley are also keeping close tabs on Dawson, 27, with the Baggies on the brink of being relegated from the Premier League.

It is understood that Dawson is one of a number of Albion stars who are likely to attract attention in the summer with Kieran Gibbs, Salomon Rondon and Matt Phillips also likely to quit The Hawthorns.

Wolves have now taken a fancy in Dawson, whose form has drastically improved since he was moved into the centre of defence after spending most of the past few seasons as a right-back.

The former Rochdale defender has been key to West Brom this season, appearing 29 times in all competitions and scoring two goals.

The Mirror adds that West Brom are bracing themselves for offers for Dawson, with bids on the cards of the summer transfer window.

Football Insider verdict

Both of the bitter Black Country rivals are in for a busy summer transfer window and it’s likely that a number of West Brom players will leave if they are relegated. Wolves on the other hand will be going mad with money, utilising their controversial links to Jorge Mendes to get some decent players in. But they really shouldn’t be signing Dawson. Fans will not take to him like that have with other signings and there’s surely no way that such a loyal Baggies star would quit to join their bitter rivals.

In other Wolves news, Wanderers are likely to sign this £95,000-a-week Tottenham player in the summer.
