Michael Dawson: Was close to a transfer to QPR last summer, but rejected the mov

Dawson was close to leaving Spurs last summer after the club accepted a £9million bid from QPR, with manager Andre Villas-Boas prepared to let the centre-back go.

However, the England international rejected a move to Loftus Road, and has enjoyed a rejuvenation this season.

Dawson, who has made 33 appearances and captained the side after the retirement of Ledley King, would be happy to extend his stay at the club.

"I've got two years left and I'd love to extend that," Dawson said.

"Hopefully if the manager and the chairman want me for that long, it would be great.

"I never gave leaving Spurs a thought last summer, having been here for eight years."

Spurs host Sunderland on Sunday, knowing that they need North London rivals Arsenal to slip up if they are to qualify for the Champions League.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
