West Bromwich Albion defender Craig Dawson has signed a new three-year-deal with his current side.
The Baggies signed the 24-year-old in 2010, and rejected several bids from fellow English Premier League side Burnley for the centre-back during the summer, and has started seven of West Brom’s eight games so far this season.
“Craig was very unsettled when I first arrived in the summer but we as a club were never interested in selling him,” said West Brom manager Alan Irvine.
“We felt he had the potential to be a top centre-back and once he got his head settled and knew he wasn’t going anywhere he started to put in very good performances.”
“His level of consistency has kept him in the team despite having our top international centre-backs breathing down his neck.”
