Michael Dawson has been told by the club that he can leave this summer, with Hull and newly promoted QPR reportedly interested.
The centre-back is into his final year of his contract with Tottenham and new boss Mauricio Pochettinois unlikely to include the 30 year-old in his plans for next season.
Dawson will be available for around £6m and Hull have shown that they are ready to splash the cash this summer as they have already secured a club record tranfer fee for Jake Livermore, and the Tigers are reportedly willing to pay £4m to acquire Dawson’s services.
But QPR boss Harry Redknapp, who has already coached Dawson, will be looking to reunite with his former captain and are current favourites to sign the Englishman.
Dawson, who made 41 appearances for the White Hart lane side last season, joined Spurs for £4m from Nottingham Forest back in 2005.
While Dawson has been told he can leave, Spurs are more reluctant to let Argentine winger Erik Lamela leave this summer, despite speculation over his future with the club.
The £27.5m signing, who moved to North London just last year has managed just 17 appearances in total in a difficult season which saw him left out of Argentina’s World Cup sqaud.
Reports have linked the 22 year-old with a return to Italy to get his career back on track but talks with Inter have so far been unsuccessful.
