Official: Watford sign Craig Dawson from West Brom

West Brom standout

Craig Dawson would spend the best part of nine years at West Brom, after signing from Rochdale in 2010.

Dawson enjoyed loans spells with Rochdale and Bolton before eventually cementing himself as a first-team regular with the Baggies.

Dawson would make 225 appearances for West Brom across all competitions.

In those 225 games, the centre-back would chip in with 15 goals and 12 assists.

The now 29-year-old played 45 games for West Brom this past season in the Championship.

West Brom would make it into a playoff spot, but lost in the semi-finals vs Aston Villa.

Watford announce Dawson

After failing to secure promotion back to the PL at the first time of asking, West Brom have sold Dawson.

Watford would announce on the 1st of July that they have acquired Dawson’s services from the Championship side.

The Hornets reported that Dawson has signed a four-year deal, keeping him at the club until at least 2023.

Watford do not mention how much they paid for Dawson.

However, the Independent is claiming that the fee is around the £6m mark.

Watford will kick off their 2019/20 Premier League campaign on August 10th, versus Brighton.

Javi Gracia’s side will then face Everton, West Ham and Newcastle in their remaining August fixtures.
