Dawson becomes Dougie Freedman's second January signing with the Premier League side keen to send him out on loan to get more playing time.

He has been unable to dislodge Jonas Olsson and Gareth McAuley from their starting berths this season but Baggies boss Steve Clarke believes Dawson still has a big future ahead of him at The Hawthorns.

Freedman enquired about Dawson when he was in charge at Crystal Palace, and he said: "We have worked very hard on this one and he has had half a dozen teams to pick from.

"I'm very pleased he's coming to us, and not I would like to point out, for money reasons. The kid feels this is where he would like to better himself."

"I have been after Craig for a few months, to be honest. And it's paid off."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
