West Ham United have completed and confirmed the signing of Craig Dawson from Watford.

The 25-year-old has the quality to improve most midtable clubs in the Premier League and he will be hoping to make the step up from the Championship this summer.

"Jarrod Bowen came in, I think he's been outstanding, they've got Antonio too but if one of these guys got injured, it's like who comes in?".

The Hammers identified Benrahma and Ebere Eze as transfer targets after the end of last season.

It would be surprising if he stayed at Brentford after falling out with the club hierarchy.

"I'm delighted to welcome Craig to the Club".

During the main window, Arsenal sealed a dramatic late deal for Thomas Partey after triggering his £45million release clause, following the news that Houssem Aouar would be staying at Lyon for another season. He is a fantastic professional with proven quality and experience in the Premier League.

"I know he will be a great addition to the dressing room - he is a committed and determined character. We wish Craig all the best during his time here and I look forward to working with him for the rest of the season", he added.

The Algerian, who can play on either flank, is unlucky to not presently be a Premier League player with the Bees narrowly missing out on promotion at the hands of West London rivals Fulham in the Championship play-off final.

Dawson registered 14 goals and three assists in 184 appearances for Watford since joining them from West Bromwich Albion.
