The Lowdown: Dawson set for West Ham exit
The 32-year-old has now entered the final year of his deal at the London Stadium, and the Irons are reluctantly open to sanctioning an exit due to him wanting to move closer to the Midlands for family reasons.
Alongside Bruno Lage’s outfit, Premier League side Aston Villa have been credited with an interest in the centre-back, and despite both clubs tabling an offer, it now looks like he could be on his way to Molineux after a fresh update.
The Latest: Wolves in Dawson talks
Taking to Twitter late on Wednesday night, Sheth confirmed that Wolves are in late negotiations to secure a deal for Dawson.
He wrote: “Wolves in advanced talks to sign West Ham United defender Craig Dawson. West Ham close to agreeing a loan deal for Southampton defender Jan Bednarek.”
The Verdict: Boly replacement
Willy Boly looks like he is set to join Nottingham Forest, and so Dawson would be a welcome experienced addition at the heart of the Wolves backline.
The 6 foot 1 colossus, who was dubbed ‘outstanding’ by sports journalist Josh Bunting, averaged 4.1 clearances and won 2.8 of his aerial duels per game for the Hammers in the top flight last season (WhoScored), and has the versatility to operate at right-back as well as centrally.
