Bolton Wanderers and West Bromwich Albion could soon be in talks about the services of England under-21 international Craig Dawson, according to Bolton News.
Dawson became an integral part of Dougie Freedman's side at the same time last season, when then manager Steve Clarke let him join the Championship outfit on loan.

New manager Pepe Mel has reiterated that Dawson is part of the clubs long-term plans by telling reporters: "He's an excellent centre-back, he's a young player and he has a big future for us."
The Spaniard also commented on the fact it wasn't just Bolton interested in the defender, who also represented Great Britain at the London Olympics:
He added: "All of the clubs in the Championship want Craig Dawson."
