Wolverhampton Wanderers have signed a deal with West Ham United for centre-back Craig Dawson, 90 minutes he understands.
Wolves were keen to land Dawson in the summer, with the player himself keen to return further north to be closer to his family, but the deal did not materialise.
now though, Wolves they returned and finalized a deal with West Ham worth just over £3m.
The 32-year-old had just six months left on his current contract at the London Stadium, and said he would not sign an extension due to family issues.
West Ham boss David Moyes spoke last week about how unimpressed he was with Wolves’ approach to Dawson before the game at Molineux, which the home side won.

“To be honest, Wolves tried to buy Daws in the summer and we said no at that time,” he said.
“It’s just part of what you do – I could bid on one of them after the game and see how it goes!”
Dawson leaves West Ham having joined from Watford in 2020, initially on a loan deal. The defender arrived at West Ham with many thinking he would only be a fringe player, but he has been an outstanding performer under Moyes and has become a fan favourite.
