Craig Dawson is a player in demand, with West Ham United and Burnley reported to be interested in the West Bromwich Albion defender.

With West Brom having been relegated to the Championship from the Premier League at the end of last season, there is a strong possibility that Dawson will leave in the summer transfer window.

Interest

After all, the 28-year-old defender has proved himself in the Premier League, and there is interest in the former England Under-21 international from West Ham and Burnley, according to media reports.

According to The Telegraph, West Ham are interested in Dawson, while The Sun has claimed that Premier League rivals Burnley want the former Rochdale star.

Huge demands

The Sun, though, has also reported that Burnley are cooling on the defender, as West Brom reportedly want £20 million as transfer fee.

The British tabloid has further claimed that Dawson wants around £75,000 per week as salary.

With such high demands, Burnley would be better off looking somewhere else for a defender, although manager Sean Dyche will have to work very hard to find a cheaper alternative.
