Report: Hull City ready to fight off interest from Bournemouth in Michael Dawson

Hull City KC North Stand

Bournemouth are said to be interested in signing Michael Dawson from Hull.

According to a report in the Daily Mirror, Bournemouth are keen to sign Michael Dawson from Hull City.

Bournemouth have already been busy in the January transfer window, and they have invested heavily in the attacking department of their squad.

The arrivals of Juan Iturbe, Benik Afobe and Lewis Grabban have considerably increased Eddie Howe’s forward options, but the south coast club now want to sign defenders.

Bournemouth have conceded a high quantity of goals, and they are short of cover in defence.

As a result, Howe wants to bring in Dawson from Hull, as he believes the experienced centre back has the ability to help them tighten up.

However, Steve Bruce’s side are said to be determined to keep hold of Dawson, making any transfer unlikely.

The Tigers are competing for promotion, and they are determined to resist all offers for their most influential players in January.
