ExWHUemployee has suggested on Twitter that Craig Dawson has been impressing in training. And some Hammers fans have reacted on Twitter to the insider’s claim.

It seems as though the only way that Dawson will get a game this season is if one of those three names suffer an injury.

 

Ogbonna is a slight injury scare ahead of next weekend’s clash with Sheffield United. But even then, Issa Diop would come in as his replacement.

It does beg the question…why did we bother signing Dawson in the first place? He earns £40k-a-week at the London Stadium according to Football League FC. So as things stand, that seems like a real waste of money.
