Tottenham defender Michael Dawson is attracting Premiership interest.

The Sun says Bolton Wanderers boss Gary Megson is ready to battle Newcastle and Aston Villa in a £4million scrap for Dawson.

Bolton boss Megs wants the Tottenham defender to bolster his back line.

Dawson, 24, has vowed to fight for his place after being pushed down the pecking order at White Hart Lane following the arrival of Juande Ramos.

Megson knows all about the player - he was Nottingham Forest manager when Dawson was sold to Spurs for £4m in 2005.
