Dawson pens new Baggies deal

Craig Dawson has signed a new contract with West Brom which will see him remain at The Hawthorns until 2018.

Dawson's previous contract had not been due to run out until the end of the 2016-17 season, but he has agreed a one-year extension.

The 25-year-old is currently the club's first-choice right back with 31 appearances this season and he had little hesitation in agreeing a new deal with Tony Pulis' side.

"I was really pleased to be able to extend my contract here, and that will take it until the summer of 2018," he told the club's official site.

"I'm really enjoying my football, especially over the last year and a half when I've been a regular in the first team.

"I feel like I've developed as a player over that period and I just want to continue on with that.

"I've been down here a few years now, the family is settled in this area, so it was a very easy decision to extend my contract.

"It means I can just concentrate on playing and doing everything I can to stay in the team and carry on contributing to things."
