Wolves have completed the signing of centre-back Craig Dawson from West Ham.
Dawson, 32, makes the move to Molineux on a two-and-a-half-year contract, sealing a return to the Midlands having spent a large chunk of his playing career at West Brom before moving to London in 2019.
Dawson joins Wolves for a £3.3m fee after weeks of speculation, which saw West Ham boss David Moyes critical of Julen Lopetegui for allegedly making his interest in the defender public earlier this month.
One-time Great Britain player Dawson has not been signed in time to feature in Sunday's trip to Manchester City but has agreed a deal until the end of the 2024/25 season.
He initially made his name at West Brom, appearing more than 200 times before impressing at West Ham where he played a key role in their run to the Europa League semi-finals last season.
Dawson helped knock out Sevilla, who were then managed by Lopetegui, but will now get the chance to work with the Spanish coach.
Who will be on the move this winter? The January transfer window opened on Sunday January 1, 2023 and closes at 11pm in England and midnight in Scotland on Tuesday January 31, 2023.
