The Dawson and Deeney Bidding Wars Hot Up!

The Clarets this week made their third bid for West Bromwich Albion defender Craig Dawson. According to the Daily Mail, a 3 million offer is now on the table. The 24-year-old Rochdale-born centre-back is thought to be keen to come to Turf Moor as he believes he will get a regular run out in the side after being frustrated at the Hawthorns. Dawson signed for West Brom in 2010, but has since made just 21 league appearances for the club. He has also spent a lot of that time out on loan at former club Rochdale and Bolton in recent seasons. He has asked to leave according to some reports by handing in an official transfer request but so far West Brom are stubbornly refusing to let him go. The Daily Mail report came out on Monday and since then there has been no news. Could that be good news in view of the fact there have been no further bids turned down or comment from West Brom reported? Are talks now in progress? Who knows, watch this space!

Meanwhile the saga surrounding Watford striker, Troy Deeney continues! The week started with reports that Watford had rejected a second bid from Leicester City for Deeney. According to the Watford Observer Deeney (pictured above0 is a reported target for Burnley, West Bromwich Albion, Norwich City and Swansea City. It is thought that Leicester have now turned down both a 6.5 and 7.5 million bid by the Foxes as well as telling Burnley where to go with similar offers. A bidding war could be set to star with Burnley and all the above mentioned clubs now also joined by QPR. QPR boss Harry Redknapp is keen to add to his striking options and with their amount of financial muscle available could be prepared to meet Watford`s valuation of the player believed to be in the region of 10 million. Aston Villa are also thought to be keeping an eye on developments.

In midweek though, it was reported that Burnley had made a substantially improved offer of 8 million for the 26 year old who scored 26 goals last season for the Hornets. Deeney of course played under Dyche when he was gaffer at Vicarage Road but whther that is an advantage in our favour remains to be seen.

It is now even doubtful that the 8 million bid was true with some local media reports saying that it was wide of the mark. Cold water was certainly poured on the reported bid later in the week when Sean Dyche told Sky Sports News:

'He's (Deeney) amongst many players I admire, good players, but we've got a certain brief from the club that we have to work to,

'The club has a base to build from, financially. We can't entertain 8m players, I can assure you of that.'
