Hull move for Tottenham defender Dawson
The Daily Mail has reported that contact has been made between Hull City and Tottenham regarding a potential transfer of defender Michael Dawson.
Dawson still has a year to run on his contract at White Hart Lane, so a fee must be negotiated between the clubs. However, it is no secret that Hull are in the market for a central defender after coming close to signing former Manchester City man Joleon Lescott.
Despite rumours of negotiations, the 2014 FA Cup finalists ultimately missed out on Lescott after he decided to join West Bromwich Albion instead. It appears that Tigers boss Steve Bruce has now turned his attention to Tottenham’s Dawson as an alternative.
26-year-old Yorkshireman Dawson began his career with Nottingham Forest before making a multi-million pound move to Tottenham in January 2005. Since making his first Spurs appearance against Liverpool in April of that year he has made more than 300 appearances in all competitions for the club, picking up a League Cup winners’ medal in 2008.
Dawson has been Tottenham club captain since 2012 and has four England caps to his name, but with new Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said to be keen on bringing several new defenders to the club, his days at White Hart Lane could be numbered.
