George Dobson will play for Fehérvár FC from next season

The hard-working English midfielder will join our club from the 1st July 2024.

George Dobson has signed a contract with our club from the 1st July 2024. Born on the 15th November 1997, the English midfielder learned the basics of football as a youngster at Arsenal and West Ham United, before playing for Walsall, Wimbledon, Dutch Premier League side Sparta Rotterdam and Sunderland before moving to Charlton Athletic, another big name club in London. At Charlton, he became a real crowd favourite and team captain for his passionate and good performances, having played 130 games in the last two and a half seasons, scoring 5 goals and providing 7 assists. After the 2021/2022 season, he was named the club's Player of the Year, finishing second in the voting after the 2022/2023 season.

Our club had agreed all terms with George Dobson's club in recent days for an immediate transfer in February, but the London club backed out of the deal at the last minute, and the midfielder will now be a player for our club from the 1st July.

"This time there was accurate information from our journalistic colleagues about this transfer, until Sunday it seemed that George Dobson could join us before the February 14th transfer window deadline. However, his current club backed out at the last minute, despite the parties having agreed all the terms in writing, with the midfielder set to move to our club and the organising of the usual medical examinations and paperwork. We regret that this has happened, we are waiting for George during the summer pre-season, and we believe that we have managed to strengthen our midfield with Dávid Sigér in such a way that we can look forward to the rest of the season with confidence" said Vidi's Managing Director Attila Balogh.
