David Moyes says ‘there is a good chance’ Craig Dawson will trigger the £2million clause to make his move to West Ham permanent.

Moyes – who signed Dawson on a season-long loan in October – has revealed that there is a clause in the player’s loan agreement which states that the deal will be made permanent once a certain number of appearances are made. 

The Hammers boss says Dawson is ‘very close to that number’ and insists he is ‘worthy’ of a permanent deal at the club as his ‘experience’ and ‘goals’ have been ‘really important’ this season.

When asked about Dawson’s future at the club, Moyes said: ‘There is a good chance although we are not quite there yet but there is a clause in it after a certain amount of games and we are getting very close to that number.

‘His performances, his attitude and determination are certainly worthy of that anyway.

‘We brought him in, it took him a while until the Southampton game I think it was before he got a start but that was because of the form of Fabian Balbuena and Angelo Ogbonna but he has come in and added goals to us as well and his experience has been really important and he is playing really well this season.’

David Moyes says Dawson is ‘very close’ to hitting the required number of games 

The 30-year-old centre-half has made a total of 12 appearances for the Hammers and headed his fourth goal for the club to wrap up a 2-0 Premier League win over Leeds

Having joined West Ham in October 2020, Dawson was forced to wait until December to make his first appearance at Southampton.

However, since then Dawson has excelled, making himself a mainstay in Moyes’ squad.

The 30-year-old centre-half has made a total of 12 appearances for the Hammers and headed his fourth goal for the club to wrap up a 2-0 Premier League win over Leeds.

As a result, Dawson is said to be close to triggering a clause that will make his move to West Ham permanent.   

Dawson has also helped club have enter into a race for the Champions League place

Standard Sport have reported that the option fee agreed between West Ham and Watford is £2million.

Moyes would gladly welcome Dawson on permanent basis as the Hammers have kept six clean sheets in the 12 Premier League games he has played.  

While their European hopes have flourish, as the club have entered into a race for the Champions League place.
