Andre Dawson, the National League's 1987 Most Valuable Player, has gotten his wish for a two-year contract with the Chicago Cubs, according to published reports.

The tentative $4 million agreement was reached late Sunday between Dawson's agent, Dick Moss, and team management.

Dawson, 33, had said earlier he would stay with the Cubs regardless of his possible free-agent status, if he could sign a two-year contract.
