Revealed: Slim majority of West Ham fan would back summer swoop for Dawson

There’s a real buzz around West Ham right now following the appointment of Manuel Pellegrini, not least because the big-name managerial arrival suggests the east Londoners will finally up the ante in the transfer market. In fact, the Chilean has already told the press that he wants to bring ‘‘four or five’ signings to the club this summer.

With that in mind, we recently asked Hammers supporters whether that should include West Brom defender Craig Dawson, who was one of the Baggies’ most reliable performers during a 2017/18 season that ended with the club’s relegation to the Championship.

The versatile defender, who can operate at right-back or centre-half, is clearly too good for the second tier, but West Ham fans appear to be divided over whether he’s the calibre of player their club should be looking at this summer.

Indeed, while the majority of those who took part in our poll – 56% – voted in favour of a summer swoop, a significant majority of 44% were against the idea. Who would you like to see the Irons sign instead, West Ham fans? Let us know by commenting below…
