Michael Dawson has left Tottenham Hotspur and has completed his transfer to Hull City on Tuesday.

The England international signed a three-year deal with the Tigers after leaving White Hart Lane to join Steve Bruce's side.

A statement on Hull's official website read, " Michael Dawson has completed a move from Tottenham Hotspur for an undisclosed fee, the Club are delighted to announce. Dawson will wear the number 21 shirt.

"Defender Dawson, 30, has penned a three-year deal with the Tigers, and is the latest player to make the switch to the KC Stadium following the arrivals of Tom Ince, Jake Livermore, Robert Snodgrass, Andrew Robertson and Harry Maguire."

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has heaped praise on the 30-year-old's contribution, both on and off the field for the north London club.

"Michael has been an outstanding Club representative both on and off the field throughout the nine-and-a-half years he has served our football club," Levy told Tottenham's official website.

"He has always given everything for the Spurs shirt - just one of the reasons he is so deservedly popular throughout the Club with teammates, staff and fans alike."

"His contribution cannot be under-estimated. He has been a fantastic individual and personality and a great influence on our younger players, for whom he always found time. We wish him the best of luck in the next chapter of his career," the Tottenham chairman added.

Meanwhile, Dawson has thanked the White Hart Lane club and Tottenham fans for their support during his time with his former club.

"I have been here for almost a decade and have loved every minute of it," the central defender explained.

"I would like to say thank you to everyone at the Club, including the supporters. We have enjoyed some incredible moments together and I hope the Club continues to move forward in the future," Dawson concluded.
