West Ham are yet to accept Wolves’ offer for Craig Dawson

West Ham chief Moyes David revealed the club had received an offer from Wolves for the defender Craig Dawson but did not accept it.

The 32-year-old Rochdale-born centre-half is said to be keen on a move north.

Dawson was linked with Wanderers – who West Ham face on Saturday – this summer, but a transfer did not materialise.

“We had an offer from Wolves, we didn’t take it and that’s all I can tell you,” Moyes said.

Moyes has plenty of midfield cover with Nayef Aguerd, Kurt Zouma, Angelo Ogbonna and Thilo Kehrer also on the books.

“We’re pretty well covered by the minute,” he added. “We are not planning anything at the moment, I tell you that we had an offer.”

Striker Michael Antonio has also been linked with a London stadium move this month.

But Moyes added: “I don’t know where that came from. He has a few years on his contract so he will stay a while.

As for the starters, Moyes admits that a deal for Moroccan Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri looks unlikely.

“We’ve been watching it for a few years. I don’t think he will be a West Ham player,” he said.

West Ham will find themselves in the relegation zone if they lose at Molineux, a long way from their sixth and seventh places in the past two seasons, and Moyes knows where the problem lies.

“There was very little fluctuation between this year and last year,” he said.

“We started last season in very good shape, this pre-season we didn’t do that, we missed big chances and that continued into the season.

“Whether it’s shots on goal or goals scored, we just couldn’t get it. It’s the biggest department where we failed and we need to get back to it.

Moyes should have an Italian leader Gianluca Scamacca back from injury, but defender Zouma is out of shape following minor knee surgery.
