The Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Cameron Dawson is interesting Preston North End, Derby County, Blackburn Rovers and Rangers ahead of the January transfer window, according to The Star.
Dawson is out of contract at the end of the campaign and, having turned 24 earlier this year, Preston, Derby, Blackburn and Rangers would be able to sign him for free if a new one cannot be agreed before then.
All four clubs have ‘keepers coming to the end of their permanent or loan deals, with Rangers in line to lose three alone next summer – although the Scottish club’s manager, Steven Gerrard, recently expressed a desire to extend Allan McGregor’s stay at Ibrox.
And Dawson, who was ousted as Wednesday’s first-choice by the more experienced Keiren Westwood midway through last season, may be keen to explore his options having played a bit-part role at his boyhood club since then. Although, with Westwood coming to the end of his career, Dawson could still have a bright future at Hillsborough.
The Owls have, however, yet to offer a new deal to the Preston, Derby, Blackburn and Rangers-linked player and some fans fear they may be leaving it too late…
The Wednesday way , he will be gone

Bit naive to be into his last season and not sorted, he’s clearly the next in line after Westwood finishes, should have been tied down last season with all the George first nonsense, will we ever learn #swfc

Get him signed up. Clearly has a very bright future.

Should definitely be given a new contract immediately

Hopefully contact talks will start shortly and dawson will be signed for many a year!

Get him signed up. Miles better than Wildsmith and has potential to be better than Westwood with the right coaching!

Others, though, are unmoved by The Star‘s report, for various reasons…
He might not want to be cover at 25? Let him go for me.

I’d let him go. I rate Wildsmith over Dawson. He’s a nice guy and a good keeper all the same so best wishes either way.

Wildsmith over Dawson every day of the week!!!!!

Needs to move on, will always be in Westwood’s shadow #SWFC

He ain’t going anywhere
— gazswfc🦉 (@garry_gazswfc) November 5, 2019
Is that his agent feeding you that ‘inside info’?
— Jonny Rep (@TrapitJon) November 5, 2019
He will be offered a new deal, without a doubt and believe he will take it
