Exclusive: Rob Lee hails Dawson’s impact at West Ham

In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Rob Lee, who made 18 appearances for West Ham, has hailed the impact Craig Dawson has had on the team since he joined on-loan from Watford.

Dawson was handed another chance in the Premier League by David Moyes after being relegated with Watford last season and despite not starting any of the Hammers’ first 11 league matches, the 31-year old has proved to be a shrewd piece of business.

Is Dawson a good signing for West Ham?





The Hammers have already agreed to sign Dawson permanently when his loan deal expires in the summer, with West Ham having to pay just £2 million for the centre back.

Speaking on how good Dawson has been this season for West Ham and how it was a no brainer to sign him permanently, Lee exclusively told FFC:

“He’s been unbelievable and you’ve got to look at his performances over the season because, for £2 million, it was a no-brainer as he’s performed magnificently.

“Since Declan Rice has been out injured they’ve found it tough though, so don’t underestimate what he does for the defence.”

Who did West Ham lose their first league game of the season against?

Dawson has plenty of Premier League experience, having played for both West Brom and Watford before his current season challenging for Europe with West Ham.

Moyes has opted for a back three for the majority of this season, which allows defenders like Dawson, who might lack a yard of pace, to still perform at the top level.
