Bolton Wanderers boss Dougie Freedman reveals that the club will not make Craig Dawson's switch from West Bromwich Albion permanent.

Bolton Wanderers manager Dougie Freedman has revealed that the club is unlikely to make Craig Dawson's move from West Bromwich Albion permanent.

The 22-year-old defender, who joined the Trotters on a three-month loan deal in January, has scored four goals in six appearances for the Championship outfit.

"I told Craig the deal. I'll develop him as a player and then I'll send him back to West Brom," Freedman told BBC Radio Manchester.

"Hopefully they [Albion] will remember us for what we've done for him.

"West Brom are a top-eight side right now and he's not going to get in their side right now. That's why he's out on loan - to get some experience."

Bolton host Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday evening.
