West Ham, Hull are 2 of 4 teams after Michael Dawson

This might be the last summer that a good fee can be fetched for Michael Dawson. Time to move on?

Michael Dawson had a very up-and-down season and, at 30 years old, isn't going to have sale value for very long. As per usual, a number of smaller clubs are interested in picking him up, and a managerial change might mean that Tottenham Hotspur is actually interested in selling this time around.

According to the Mirror, there are four teams currently eying up Dawson: Hull City, West Ham United, Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers. All of those teams have pretty questionable depth at central defender and would be improved by picking up Dawson. They're calling Hull's move a 'double swoop' for Dawson and Livermore, because you know how much the papers like the term 'double swoop'.

The rumored fee is £3m, which isn't much of a fee at all. But if Mauricio Pochettino is certain that Dawson will be nothing more than a fourth central defender and Dawson wants to be a key player somewhere, it wouldn't be surprising to see Spurs let him go for whatever they can get. And if a lot of Premier League clubs are genuinely interested, that number might get driven up a bit.

It's a pretty soft rumor, but one that makes a lot of sense for everyone. We might have seen the last of Dawson in a Spurs shirt.
