Transfer Tavern take
Dawson has worked his way into David Moyes’ starting eleven whilst managing to keep the likes of Issa Diop and Fabian Balbuena out of the side at one stage.

Signing Dawson permanently could be a bargain for just £2.5m based off his recent performances, and West Ham fans may be ecstatic when this obligation to buy clause is triggered.
