Michael Dawson’s proposed transfer away from White Hart Lane has stalled as Hull City won’t meet the London club's valuation.
The Sport Review reports how the Spurs captain experienced an up and down campaign under Andre Villas-Boas and fellow Englishman Tim Sherwood making 41 appearances in the whole of last season, but missing out on that elusive fourth place finish in the Premier League.
However, club veteran Dawson, 30, looks to be on his way out of the club as a radical overhaul is to begin under new manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Pochettino, who took over as boss at the end of the season is looking to bring in many new signings, and to do that some players will need to leave.
Dawson, seeming to be one of these players to be heading for the exit will be delighted for the chance to head back to his hometown if the deal comes to fruition.
Even though Tottenham will try to hang on to their captain for as long as possible, who has been at the club for nine years after signing from Nottingham Forest.
The Tigers will still attempt to plug away and want to bring the centre-back to the club but at the moment, manager Steve Bruce says a deal is far from nearing completion.
“It’s stalemate with regard to Michael at the moment," he explained. “Michael I’ve always liked, there’s no disputing that.
“But at the end of the day, he’s Tottenham’s captain with time on his contract.”
Queens Park Rangers are said to be the only opposition to Hull for Dawson’s signature as they try to strengthen their team after getting promoted from the Championship last term.
