The summer rebuilding programme set to be executed by Aitor Karanka is eagerly anticipated by Nottingham Forest supporters.
The plan to build a side that can challenge for promotion is one that everyone finds very appealing.
Therefore, the news that Karanka has persuaded Michael Dawson to make a return to the club he started his professional career with, back in 2001, is good news indeed.
Dawson, now 34-years-of-age, has put pen-to-paper on a 2-year deal after his contract at Hull City expired.
Talking about the capture, on the official website, Click Here, Karanka has remarked,
“I’m really pleased because I always said that Michael is more than just a player. He knows how big and how important this club is and he wanted to come back.
“He’s a really good player and a great character so he’ll be very useful for us both on and off the pitch and they’re the sort of players we’re looking for.”
But what’s our opinion on the signing?
Vital Forest Verdict – Cutting straight to the chase, we realise that Michael Dawson is no spring chicken, but although he’s approaching the mid-thirties his experience will be invaluable. Dawson is the kind of player that will spur his teammates on and his footballing brain will counteract any pace he may have lost. His physical presence will also serve Forest well in what is becoming a very rugged league. In short, we approve of Michael Dawson coming back to our club and welcome his addition to the first team.
But how about you?
