Craig Dawson will STAY at West Ham this season despite a £5million deal being agreed with Wolves as the Hammers’ move for Aston Villa bound Jan Bednarek falls through
- Veteran defender Craig Dawson will not be leaving West Ham this summer
- The 32-year-old was set for a £5million move to midlands outfit Wolves
- But West Ham’s failure to land Jan Bednarek means Dawson will stay in London
- The Southampton central defender has instead decided to join Aston Villa
West Ham defender Craig Dawson is set to stay in London this season after a deal to bring Southampton defender Jan Bednarek to the club failed to materialise.
Dawson was keen to return to the Midlands after two seasons at the London Stadium, but is now poised to stay at the club until at least January with boss David Moyes unwilling to let him leave.
Wolves had already agreed a £5.25million deal for Dawson, but Bednarek’s decision to sign for Aston Villa has seen West Ham call off the move.

The London side saw the Southampton centre-back as the perfect replacement for 32-year-old Dawson who was eager to leave the club this summer.
West Ham are not expected to re-enter the market for more defensive reinforcements on deadline day.
