Dawson permanent deal would help striker issue

West Ham could help themselves find an on loan domestic striker by signing Craig Dawson now.

The on loan Watford central defender has ben a massive success since arriving in the Hammers team and has an option to buy attached to his current deal with us.

ClaretandHugh revealed recently that the Hammers are likely to bring the 30 year old on board permanently as a result at the end of the campaign.

But with a striker needed desperately either on loan or as a permanent signing this looks the way forward.

While the Hammers can sign any player on loan from abroad they are limited to just two domestic loans which are currently already filled.

The Hammers would only pay around £2m to £3 million for him which would release a loan spot on the squad with only Said Benrahma in the same position but with an obligation to buy attached yo his current deal at the end of the season.

David Moyes has spoken highly of Dawson in recent comments and it seems a given that he will want to make him a fully fledged member of the squad.

So why not now and get that striker in?

  1. Has the Ngakia fee been settled with Watford yet?….. If not, it can/will probably be used as part of the deal?

  2. Don’t forget – Watford have a right to recall in Jan – so if say Burnley offer £5m to but outright they could simply recall and sell

  3. What happened with Ngakia’s transfer fee from Watford?
    Anyone know.

  4. Dawson has proved his value. Pay the transfer fee and worry about other positions, if at all, this transfer window.
