Spurs Transfers: Michael Dawson To Hull Agreed

Spurs' captain and longest-serving player on the way out.

The official Tottenham Hotspur Football Club Twitter account has revealed that a deal has been agreed between the club and Hull City for the transfer of Michael Dawson. The former Nottingham Forest centre back has been at White Hart Lane since 2005 and has established himself as the club captain, forming an excellent relationship with the Lilywhites' fans in the process. The fee hasn't been made public yet, but Dawson has spoken out about the move and it seems he is leaving with something of a heavy heart:
I have been here for almost a decade and have loved every minute of it. I would like to say thank you to everyone at the club, including the supporters. We have enjoyed some incredible moments together and I hope the club continues to move forward in the future.
Dawson has made 236 Premier League appearances for Spurs €“ 221 of which have come from the start €“ and 88 appearances in other competitions. He has found the net on ten occasions for the club. Chairman Daniel Levy has spoken about his admiration and appreciation for Dawson's service to the club:
Michael has been an outstanding club representative both on and off the field. He has always given everything for the Spurs shirt - just one of the reasons he is so deservedly popular throughout the cub.
In his time at Spurs, Dawson has made four appearances for England, but it has long been touted that he would be on the way out under Mauricio Pochettino's leadership, as several defensive targets have been touted. Dawson's exit paves the way for the imminent signing of Federico Fazio from Sevilla. What do Spurs fans think of Dawson leaving? Is it a good move for the club? Will he be missed? And do Hull City fans welcome his arrival? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. And please feel free to follow me on Twitter!
