Tottenham Hotspur fans delighted for Dawson as he returns to Nottingham Forest

Nowadays, football fans competing at the top level, like Tottenham Hotspur, are on the prowl for world-class signings.

However, they can also appreciate it when one of their former stars moves on in their careers.

Michael Dawson is a big favourite among the Spurs following as he spent nine years at the North London outfit between 2005 and 2014.

It became clear that the defender was not going to be part of Mauricio Pochettino’s revolution when the Argentine took over the club, so in order to further his career, Dawson moved to Hull City.

Over the course of a four-year spell, the centre-back made 122 league appearances for the Tigers, and now he is going back to his roots.

Dawson, who has earned four England caps, came through the Nottingham Forest youth ranks, and this week he agreed to sign a two-year deal at the Championship outfit.

Once the deal was announced, Tottenham fans sent their well-wishes and brought some fond memories out of the vault.
