According to The Mirror, reported Celtic and Leicester City target Craig Dawson is training away from the West Bromwich Albion first team.

It has been reported that Dawson has been excluded from first-team training after the 28-year-old defender handed in a transfer request.

Premier League club Leicester City and Scottish Premiership side Celtic are reported to be interested in the 28-year-old defender.

Exit likely?

With Dawson reportedly training away from the first-team squad, it does seem likely that the 28-year-old will leave West Brom before the summer transfer window shuts down.

The defender is a very good player and has proved himself in the Premier League, and the former Rochdale man would be a good signing for Leicester or Celtic.

Celtic could do with an experienced and established defender like Dawson, while Leicester would be a better team with the West Brom centre-back in it.

However, with West Brom wanting £20 million as transfer fee for Dawson, as reported by The Daily Mail, he will be too costly for Celtic and perhaps even Leicester.
