Michael Dawson: Hull City in talks with Tottenham defender

Hull City are in transfer talks with Tottenham defender Michael Dawson.

BBC Radio Humberside reports the 30-year-old held discussions with the FA Cup finalists on Wednesday.

The former Nottingham Forest man signed a new three-year deal at White Hart Lane last October and has made 236 league appearances for the club.

The Tigers, who are also hoping to sign winger Tom Ince, have added midfielders Jake Livermore and Robert Snodgrass so far this summer.

Dawson has four England caps, but has not played for the national side under Roy Hodgson, with his last appearance coming in the 2-0 win over Wales in March 2011.

His older brother Andy spent a decade at the KC Stadium side before re-joining Scunthorpe United in May 2013.
