According to a report by club insiders Claret & Hugh, via West Ham Central, defender Craig Dawson will sign for West Ham United once he makes just two more appearances for the club – a fee which will apparently total £2.2 million.
Manager David Moyes also confirmed in a press conference that Dawson is ‘very close’ to becoming a permanent player as the club near his obligation to buy clause over the amount of matches featured (football.london).
Now, Claret & Hugh claim that the exact number of appearances needed is two – with the transfer fee paid to parent club Watford amounting to around £2.2m when the clause is triggered.
Flocking to this claim, plenty of Hammers were in full reaction as one supporter called it the ‘best news I have heard all day’.
Given the unexpected impact Dawson has made at the London Stadium, keeping the likes of Fabian Balbuena and Issa Diop out the team at points this season, it’s hardly surprising some supporters are excited.
Find all of their verdicts down below.
West Ham fans flock to Dawson claim
“Great business he is a decent solid pro”
“Best news I have heard all day”
“7.2 million for Coufal and Dawson… Ridiculously good business. Quite rare for us.”
“What a bargain”
“Wow we need to wrap him up in cotton wool and hope he don’t get injured and be out for the rest of the season, which would normally be our luck (just hope he actually wants to stay)”
