Stoke look to Dunne & Dawson

Stoke City are rumoured to be looking to add a central defender to their ranks.

Reports suggest that Stoke are looking to add Aston Villa`s Irish centre half Richard Dunne and Tottenham Hotspur`s Michael Dawson to their squad.

Aston Villa are looking to trim their squad and wage bill before the end of the transfer window, and long-time admirer Tony Pulis is looking to swipe for the 33-year-old defender, who the Welshman will use to replace the departed Danny Collins and Jonathan Woodgate.

A potential hitch in the transfer is that the Irishmen who has been capped 76 times has just undergone surgery on a groin injury and is trying to prove his fitness before the potential £3 million transfer.

Welsh supreme Pulis is also looking to snatch Michael Dawson from under the noses of Q.P.R., who have reportedly had a bid accepted for the central defender.

Stoke could use captain Ryan Shawcross as bait in any potential transfer, which could see the former England under-21 international move in the other direction.

Dawson, who has fallen out of favour at White Hart Lane since Andre Villas-Boas took over, is also being touted by Sunderland.

The Potters are set to go into a three way battle for the former Nottingham Forest defender who has been capped by England four times and are on the verge of making a £10 million bid, which could involve Shawcross in a part exchange deal.

We would love to see dawson stay, but he is 5th in our pecking order now. At some point we need to get Chaulker in the starting 11. AvB is looking to play a high up the field pressure game, so he is moving on all the slower paced players. Unfortunately Dawson VdV might be culled because of it. Stoke is a great place for Dawson to come, he is a honest hard working player that would be ruined at somewhere like QPR.
