Transfer insider ExWHUemployee has claimed that Aston Villa will not try and sign Craig Dawson this January despite past transfer interest.
Despite that, Ex has claimed that new Villa manager Unai Emery will not be soon keen on rekindling the club’s past transfer interest.
When talking on The West Ham Way podcast, the insider said: “The clubs that are interested in Dawson were Villa and Wolves. Both have got new managers since they were interested.
“Would Emery at Villa want Dawson? I can’t see that match, to be fair.”
Of course, Steven Gerrard was in charge when Dawson was linked with Villa but the English manager has since been sacked with Emery now taking over.
And the Spaniard has helped his new side pick up three wins from four league games so far. Dawson, on the other hand, has lost all five of the past five games he has started for West Ham in the same competition.
It remains to be seen if Villa could chase a centre-back this summer but there certainly might be more glamorous options than the 32-year-old.
