Tottenham Hotspur defender Michael Dawson has admitted that he would like to extend his contract with the club to stay in north London for the foreseeable future, Sky Sports reports.

The 29-year-old almost left the club last summer after Andre Villas-Boas was set to let the defender leave, accepting a £9 million bid from cross city rivals QPR, however, Dawson turned the move down and instead set about reestablishing himself in the Spurs side and enjoying a fine season.

Spurs narrowly missed out on Champions League qualification this season but the England international captained the side for most of his 33 appearances this term following the retirement of Ledley King and he has admitted that he would like to stay at the club beyond the end of his current deal.

“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.”

Dawson joined Spurs from Nottingham Forest in 2005 and has gone on to make over 250 appearances for the club during his time there.
