Dawson makes Hull switch

Hull City have completed the signing of Tottenham defender Michael Dawson for an undisclosed fee, with the 30-year-old having signed a three-year contract, Sky Sports has reported.

He joins after nine and-a-half years at White Hart Lane, where he was club captain. His performances earned him international recognition as he was handed four England caps, but the prospect of a lack of first-team football at Tottenham has now led him to move to Humberside.


Tigers boss Steve Bruce has been interested in Dawson throughout the summer, and he now becomes his third signing of the transfer window after Andrew Robertson and Robert Snodgrass. He also follows in the footsteps of his brother Andy, who represented Hull in the Premier League between 2008 and 2010.


Dawson made 324 appearances for Tottenham and scored 10 goals, but was unlikely to feature heavily under new boss Mauricio Pochettino, which a key factor in his decision to move. “I’m just excited about getting started here now,’ he said. ‘The whole football club made it an attractive move to me – the manager, the squad of players, the fans. I feel ready and raring to go.


“Leaving Tottenham after ten years there was always going to be hard for me, but the chances to play there were going to be less and so a move to Hull City represented a great opportunity for me.


“At the end of the day, footballers want to play football and that wasn’t going to happen for me at Tottenham. Once the owners and the manager here had been in touch with me about the possibility of a move, I just knew it was right.’
