TalkSPORT are today reporting that both Crystal Palace and West Ham could renew their interest in Tottenham defender Michael Dawson over the coming days, after talks between the centre-back and Hull City broke down.
The news comes following quotes given to the radio station by Hull manager Steve Bruce, who, after initially showing real desire to sign Dawson, has admitted that the two parties are nowhere near reaching any sort of agreement.
The Hull boss said:
As far as Michael is concerned, it’s stalemate and at the moment we are as far away as we can be from doing a deal.
With Palace still actively in the market for Cardiff defender Steven Caulker, despite well publicised interest from QPR, there is the possibility that a move for Dawson could be the last thing on Tony Pulis’ mind, but should the negotiations with Caulker continue to drag on, there’s no reason to suggest that we wouldn’t consider a move for the Spurs man instead.
At 30, the England defender has racked up an impressive 396 professional appearances in a 13 year career, but with the new Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino seemingly nonplussed over whether or not the long-term Tottenham captain remains at White Hart Lane, you would assume that Dawson would jump at the chance of regular Premier League starts elsewhere.
Would you like to see Palace move for Dawson, or do you feel Caulker represents a better option?
