Watford sign centre back Dawson from West Brom

The fee was undisclosed but British media said the deal was worth 5.5 million pounds and 29-year-old Dawson has the option of a further year.

A former England Under-21 international who also represented Team GB at the 2012 London Olympics, Dawson brings a wealth of experience to Vicarage Road, having racked up 153 top-flight appearances before West Brom suffered relegation in 2018.

Dawson featured 45 times in all competitions as West Brom reached the Championship (second-tier) playoffs last season where they lost to Aston Villa in the semi-finals.

He becomes Watford boss Javi Gracia's first close-season signing as the London club look to build on their 11th-placed finish in the league last season.

Watford kick off their 2019-20 campaign against Brighton & Hove Albion on Aug. 10.
