Bolton Wanderers loan signing Craig Dawson sees his future at parent club West Bromwich Albion.

Dawson is hoping his loan spell at Bolton will give him the experience he needs to get more regular first-team football on his return to The Hawthorns.

"To keep developing I've got to be playing games," said Dawson to the WBA website.

"I've not been able to quite get a first-team spot here because Jonas [Olsson] and Gareth [McAuley] have done really well.

"So, hopefully I can get some games at Bolton. It's not going to be easy to get into the team there either. It's a squad full of experienced Premier League players.

"It's going to be a tough task but one I can hopefully do well.

"You've got to be playing games to improve and hopefully I can do that at Bolton and come back here and play games."
