Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Cameron Dawson has played down talk of him leaving.

The Owls have Keiren Westwood as their first-choice, with Dawson beating out Joe Wildsmith as the main backup. Dawson has though started the last two games, and has a real chance to supplant Westwood.

This comes just a month after The Star report that Preston want to sign Dawson, but face competition from Blackburn Rovers, Derby County and Rangers.

Dawson is out of contract at the end of the season, meaning he would be able to walk away from Hillsborough, and that would fit in with Preston’s approach.

North End aren’t big spenders, and they’ll know Dawson has potential if given a starting role. With Declan Rudd having his doubters – and just a few months left on his contract – Dawson makes sense for North End.

Dawson is though a Sheffield lad, and grew up supporting Wednesday, so it would take a lot for him to leave the Owls. Now, the 24-year-old has offered an update on his situation.

The shot-stopper claimed to The Star that Wednesday is ‘my club’, and wants to play in the Premier League with Wednesday having followed them in League One and the Championship, hinting that he plans to stay at Hillsborough.

“This is my club,” said Dawson. “I have been a bit unfortunate in that I have never seen the good days with this club. When I was growing up, it was the tough days of League One and scratching around in the Championship. I would love to be part of this club when we do get there (the Premier League). I want to really be part of it when there is a positive time for this football club,” he added.
