Watford have completed the signing of defender Craig Dawson from West Brom for an undisclosed fee. Centre-back Dawson has agreed a four-year deal at Vicarage Road to become the Premier League club’s first summer signing.
The 29-year-old scored three times in 45 appearances in all competitions for the Baggies last season, as they reached the Championship play-off semi-finals.
“The club wishes Craig and his family all the very best in the future,” read a statement on West Brom’s website. Dawson joined West Brom from Rochdale in 2010, initially remaining on loan at Spotland.
The former England Under-21 international, who had a temporary spell with Bolton in 2013, played 225 times for the Baggies, scoring 15 goals.
