Michael Richard Dawson (born 18 November 1983) is an English professional footballer who plays as a defender for Premier League club Hull City. He is the current captain for Hull City and has also played for the England national team.

Dawson started his career at Nottingham Forest playing alongside veteran defender Des Walker before moving to Tottenham Hotspur with teammate Andy Reid for a fee of £8 million. While at Tottenham Dawson won the Football League Cup in 2008.

Midway through the 2009–10 season, Dawson became the team captain of Tottenham Hotspur as Robbie Keane left for Celtic on loan in January. His form that season saw him included in England's preliminary 2010 FIFA World Cup squad. Although he initially failed to make the final 23-man squad, an injury to captain Rio Ferdinand saw him drafted in as replacement.

In August 2014 Hull City signed Dawson from Tottenham for a fee believed to be £3.5 million. Although relegated with Hull at the end of the 2014–15 season he helped them return to the Premier League when they beat Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship Play-off final.
