According to a report on the Daily Mail’s live transfer feed (13:26), West Bromwich Albion are set to reject a £25 million bid from Burnley for Craig Dawson and Jay Rodriguez, and that shows great ambition.

Not many Championship sides would be able to reject such vast figures, but West Brom seem determined to have a strong push for promotion in the upcoming campaign.

Albion deserve credit for not accepting the fairly big money offer, and looking to keep Darren Moore’s squad together.

Although West Brom realise that they could have to sell some of their key players, at appears that the Midlands club will not give up their top talent without a fight.

That should please West Brom fans, as it proves just how determined they are to make an immediate return to the Premier League.

West Brom have a lot experience of bouncing straight back from relegation.

And if they manage to keep Dawson and Rodriguez around at the Hawthorns next term, then their chances of promotion will be significantly increased.
