Big Dawson decision as deal falls apart

By Dave Langton

West Ham and Craig Dawson need to make a decision over his future in the coming hours after a deal to sign Jan Bednarek from Southampton collapsed.

The Hammers had been exploring a potential deal to sign the defender from Saints on loan prior to the deadline.

But sources at the club have now told C&H that any deal to sign Bednarek now looks extremely unlikely.

BBC Sport has reported that the Poland international instead appears to be heading to Aston Villa on loan.

It leaves Dawson in limbo at this point.

Wolves and Villa have both expressed an interest in signing the centre-back and there remains a possibility that he could move to Molineux, with the club engaging the Hammers in talks over the past few days.

However, David Moyes may look to veto that deal after the Bednarek deal fell apart.

The Irons have consistently taken the stance that they will not allow Dawson to leave unless a replacement can be sourced, and time is running out.

  1. I realise it’s all part of the ‘deadline day drama’ however, Caleta-Car is in London to secure a move to the Premiership….. who else would he be signing for??

  2. Some reports indicate that Moyes stopped this deal proceeding as he decided at the eleventh hour that his priority was to sign a right back. As of now (8.30pm) it looks as though, as a consequence we have lost out on Bednatek, Dawson’s family problems are unresolved and no-one is coming in. If he had more faith in Harrison Ashby he could promote him to the first team squad which might encourage him to sign a new contract. Unfortunately he looks to be going the same way as Sonny Perkins, which would be a great loss.

    • I’m not sure any deal was stopped because Moyes thought he needed a RB, when he has 3 already (Coufal, Johnson, Ashby.)
