Rumours started out on Walsall fans site UpTheSaddlers however news has started to travel north with Sunderland fan accounts reporting that he’s close to signing.
Dobson was captain of the Saddlers last season following the injury to Adam Chambers but despite his early season form his performances were inconsistent – very much like the rest of the squad.
Dobson joined the Saddlers on loan from West Ham in 2016 and went on to play twenty-one times for the Saddlers.
He joined Sparta Rotterdam on a permanent deal for the 2016/17 season but rejoined the Saddlers in January 2018, then signed a new three-year deal in November 2018, keeping him at the club until 2021.
Dobson has gone on to play a further sixty times for the Saddlers.
We revealed last week that clubs were sniffing around George Dobson.
For anyone that watched Dobson against Alfreton on Saturday you would think that his mind wasn’t in it, not to mention he played second half with the youngsters and trialists.
We will bring you more news as we have it.
