MOYES TO TAKE PUNT ON DUNK

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - SPORT - BY ALEX CROOK

WEST HAM boss David Moyes wants to make Brighton de­fender Lewis Dunk his first buy.

Cen­tre-back Dunk has im­pressed dur­ing the Seag­ulls’ solid start to life in the P Premier League and M Moyes be­lieves he would im­prove the Ham­mers’ brit­tle back­line.

But Al­bion would de­mand a huge fee to sell Dunk (left), who only signed a new fiveyear con­tract in

Au­gust.

Brighton-born Dunk, 25, has played 180 league games for his home­town club.

His part­ner­ship with Repub­lic of Ire­land ace Shane Duffy has led to calls for him to be named in the Eng­land squad.
