Mauricio Pochettino will have to quickly assess his current Spurs squad and decide who he wants to keep and who should be ushered through the exit door and the press feel that the Argentinian’s arrival could spell the end for Michael Dawson.
The club captain played only 16 times in the league last season and this wasn’t the first injury hit campaign to strike the former Notts Forest defender in recent years. Dawson also failed to make the starting XI at times under Tim Sherwood and at 30, the club may decide to move him on while they can still get a fee.
Hull City are the team widely linked today after landing Tom Huddlestone last year and taking Jake Livermore on loan. Alternatively, Crystal Palace could be a destination for Daws if he decides to stay in London.
Fees from £3.5m upwards are being quoted but has time finally run out on Michael Dawson’s Tottenham career?
