Hammers centre-back Craig Dawson will allegedly almost certainly leave West Ham United in the January transfer window.
That’s according to club insiders Claret and Hugh who claim that the 32-year-old is highly unlikely to remain at the London Stadium beyond the January window.
Dawson was actually really close to leaving the London Stadium in the summer, but Moyes failed to sign a replacement in time according to a report from The Daily Mail.
And it has recently been suggested that the experienced centre-back is determined to leave West Ham in the January transfer window in order to move closer to his family in the north of England.
Dawson is loved at the London Stadium. Losing him would be a sad moment in time for the Hammers fans.
However, it seems as though that’s something that we’re going to have to prepare for…
Craig Dawson almost certain to leave West Ham in the January transfer window
That’s according to Claret and Hugh who claim that the 32-year-old will surely be on his way out of the club this winter.
Losing Dawson would obviously be a really big blow for the Hammers.
We are well covered in central defence, but Dawson’s influence both on and off the pitch cannot be underestimated.
Many fans and so-called pundits view Dawson as an old-school, no nonsense defender, and in some ways, that’s exactly what he is.
The truth though, is that the 32-year-old has so much more about him than that.
He originally joined the Hammers on a season-long loan from Watford in October 2020. West Ham then made his move to the London Stadium a permanent one for around £3 million in the summer of 2021 (The Sun).
Daws has established himself as a cult hero at West Ham but he’s actually a lot more than that. He’s a very good good defender, and labelling him as a cult hero really doesn’t do him justice.
The 32-year-old is one of the best passers amongst the West Ham centre-backs now having worked really hard to improve that aspect of his game, and he deserves huge credit for that.
Dawson has proven that you shouldn’t ever judge a book by its cover.
He has been absolutely superb for the Hammers for the past two years.
So losing Dawson in the January transfer window will be a big blow for West Ham.
