Tottenham have agreed to sign Sporting Lisbon defender Eric Dier for £4m.
Dier was born in England but moved to Portugal at 10 years of age and has stayed in Lisbon since joining the club's academy as a teenager. The defender has represented England at Under-21 level, can play at center back, right back or defensive midfield and will join Tottenham for a £4million fee subject to completing a medical later today. His arrival could push Michael Dawson closer to the exit door, with a move to Hull remaining a possibility. Aug 1 - 5:04 AM

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

Dawson has been a long time target of Hull manager Steve Bruce as he looks for a suitable partner for the outstanding Cutis Davis, and the defender is now in talks to join the likes of Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone in making the move from Tottenham. Mauricio Pochettino is likely to want defenders adept at playing a high line, something that 30-year-old Dawson has struggled with in the past, most notably under Andre Villas-Boas. Southampton's Dejan Lovren is the rumoured replacement bound for White Hart Lane.

Steve Bruce seems intent on assembling a Spurs B team at Hull City with news that Michael Dawson is a transfer target for the club.

Bruce has already purchased Tom Huddlestone, is in negotiations to make Jake Livermore's loan move a permanent move and now is rumored to want to add Michael Dawson to the ex-Spurs contingent at Hull. With Mauricio Pochettino arriving and likely wanting defenders adept at playing a high line, Dawson seems like a reasonable candidate to move on. With Hull City looking for an upgrade across from Curtis Davies, Hull seems like a reasonable landing spot. The clubs clearly have open lines of communication so this one seems like there might be some legs.

Michael Dawson is back in the Tottenham squad to face Stoke City after a month out with a hamstring injury.

Dawson may be back, but there is no guarantee he starts the game with Vlad Chiriches and the recently impressive Zeki Fryers both available to partner Younes Kaboul in the heart of the Spurs defence. Jan Vertonghen is still working his way back to fitness, Mousa Dembele is doubtful with an ankle injury, while Etienne Capoue, Kyle Walker and and Erik Lamela all remain out.

Michael Dawson is back in training, but won't be considered for the weekend's match against Fulham. Kyle Walker and Jan Vertonghen also miss out again, meaning the Spurs backline almost picks itself.

Kyle Naughton and Younes Kaboul seem nailed on. Vlad Chiriches, and Danny Rose will likely line-up against Fulham, but Zeki Fryers is an option to replace either man.

Tottenham's Michael Dawson is in contention to play in Sunday's trip to Liverpool after returning to full training on Tuesday.

Dawson may well be ready, but Tim Sherwood could leave the defender on the bench against Liverpool's attack. For all his qualities, Dawson lacks pace in the extreme and he could find things tough going again the likes to Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling. Younes Kaboul has been performing well so he has a chance of keeping his place alongside Jan Vertonghen, as Spurs try to get something at Anfield to keep their slim hopes of a top four finish alive.

Club captain Michael Dawson has signed a new three-year contract with Tottenham that will keep him at White Hart Lane until 2016.

Dawson is a fine example to all aspiring (and existing) Premier League footballers. At the start of last season he was Andre Villas-Boas' fourth choice central defender and was on the verge of joining relegation-bound QPR, but he decided to stay and fight for his place at Spurs. He is now one half of the first choice partnership alongside Jan Vertonghen, has made the captaincy his own after Ledley King's retirement and has been rewarded with a contract that will take him well in to his thirties. Dawson will face competition from Younes Kaboul and Vlad Chiriches as the season progresses but for now he should be considered a starter for Premier League games.

Tottenham have continued their summer spending with the signing of Steaua Bucharest centre-back Vlad Chiriches.

With William Gallas retiring and Steven Caulker's surprise sale to Cardiff, Tottenham had only three recognised central defenders in the squad but Chiriches now brings that number to four. The deal is for around £8.5million and the highly-rated Romanian will provide competition to Michael Dawson, Jan Vertonghen and Younes Kaboul.
