West Ham boss David Moyes has turned his attention to signing Watford centre-back Craig Dawson, according to a report from the Daily Mail. And some Hammers fans have reacted angrily on Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
The east London outfit have been linked with a plethora of exciting defenders during this transfer window including the likes of James Tarkowski (The Telegraph), Daniele Rugani (Corriere Torino), Duje Caleta-Car (the Sun) and Nikola Milenkovic (Gianluca Di Marzio).
As things stand, however, we have failed in our pursuits of every single one of those names.
And it seems as though we may now have to make do with Watford’s journeyman centre-back Craig Dawson (Daily Mail).
In 29 Premier League appearances last season, Dawson averaged one tackle, 1.2 interceptions, 3.8 clearances and 1.1 blocks per game. He also won an average of 3.5 aerial duals per match (Who Scored).
Dawson is a decent centre-back, certainly at Championship level. But signing him would go against everything David Moyes wants to achieve at West Ham.
Let’s just hope that this one is purely agent talk.
Some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in order to vent their anger in reaction to the report suggesting that Hornets defender Dawson is a target for David Moyes…
A loan. Diangana sacrificed for Dawson on loan. It’s quite unbelievable, even for Sullivan’s standards. #GSBOUT
