Hull City’s Michael Dawson will make his decision on whether he will move to Nottingham Forest this week according to a report from the Hull Daily Mail.
The 34-year-old defender’s contract is set to expire this summer and he has been given a choice about his future. Despite a disappointing campaign which saw them fight against relegation rather than trying to get promoted like initially expected, Hull have decided to offer another contract to their captain as they look to keep the core of their side. However Nottingham Forest have also offered him a deal after they came close to signing him back in January.
Many expect that Forest are going to win the battle to sign Dawson. With the former England international’s career starting to come to an end, a move back to the club where it all started is one that appeals to him. And much like how Stewart Downing moved back to Middlesbrough to get them promoted to the Premier League, Dawson could end up returning to Forest to help them get their long-awaited return to the top tier.
But we will soon find out where Dawson will be playing next season soon. According to this report, he is nearing a decision on his future and it should be revealed this week. Losing Dawson would be a blow for Hull especially as he would most likely be heading to one of their Championship rivals who have very similar aims for next season. And for Forest, signing a veteran defender can only be a boost ahead of a big season for Aitor Karanka and co.
