DONE DEAL: Wolves sign West Ham defender Craig Dawson


Wolves have completed the signing of West Ham United defender Craig Dawson.

The 32-year-old joins on a two-and-a-half-year deal from fellow Premier League side West Ham United, where he has spent the past three years, taking his top flight appearances to 246.

A committed central defender, Dawson's professional career began with his hometown club of Rochdale back in 2009, where his impressive performances saw him swap League One for the Premier League with West Bromwich Albion.

Wolves chief Matt Hobbs said, “Everyone will be aware it's a signing we tried to do last window and it fell through in the end because the replacement West Ham were looking at fell through. Craig's wanted to come here for the last six months, so it's something we've kept warm and kept in touch on.

“His family are in the north of England, so for him it's great to get closer to them. He's a player we've wanted for a while, so it was great to get it done, even if it's six months later than we wanted, but it's good to get here now."
