West Ham fans really don’t want to sign Craig Dawson

West Ham United have made a surprise £12million bid for West Bromwich Albion’s Craig Dawson which has been rejected by the Baggies, according to The Telegraph.

The Hammers have already been in the transfer market this summer, having signed right-back Ryan Fredericks from Fulham on a free transfer, Toulouse defender Issa Diop and Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.

Clearly new boss Manuel Pellegrini is keen to strengthen the defence as he has made a bid for 28-year-old Dawson.

According to the report, West Brom boss Darren Moore rates the centre-back closer to £20million which seems steep for a player valued at £7.2million on Transfermarkt.

Dawson made 28 appearances for the Baggies last season, scoring twice, but his consistent defensive displays could not prevent the side being relegated to the Championship.
