Watford are looking to improve their defence for next season with a move for West Bromwich Albion's Craig Dawson, according to a number of reports.

The Hornets were linked with a move for Dawson last summer, but a deal was never completed and the player ended up staying with the Baggies.

Following the departure of Miguel Britos, Watford are short on defensive reinforcements and reports from several outlets throughout the country are linking Dawson as a potential figure to strengthen the back.

The 29-year-old has previously played with Ben Foster at West Brom.
