According to an update by club insider and reliable source ExWHUemployee (via West Ham News), backing up previous claims from Claret & Hugh, West Ham United are very keen to sign loanee defender Craig Dawson on a permanent deal this month and could secure him for a ‘bargain‘ of around £2-3 million.
As a result, Irons flocked to this news that West Ham could snap him up indefinitely for a meagre price tag, and it’s clear to see why judging by his recent performances under David Moyes.
Should West Ham sign Craig Dawson on a permanent deal?
Yes, it is an absolute no brainer
Should be focusing on signing a new striker
The Englishman has been a mainstay over the last few weeks, even managing to usurp defensive options Fabian Balbuena and Issa Diop who usually partner centre-back Angelo Ogbonna in the centre of Moyes’ defence.
According to WhoScored, Dawson has managed more clearances per 90 than any Irons player this season – marking him out as a reliable presence in the Hammers back four.
Now, reacting to an update by ExWHUemployee, as relayed by West Ham News on Twitter, many supporters have urged GSB to sign him on a permanent deal – especially considering the potential fee could be around £2-3m.
Find all of their best verdicts on the update down below.
