Dawson is back in training at Middlewood Road in the week Wednesday returned for pre-season ahead of another grueling League One season.

And he will be joined by a new rival for the Owls’ number one spot, David Stockdale, whose signing of fellow third-tier promotion hopefuls Wycombe Wanderers was confirmed last week.

Cameron Dawson returns to Sheffield on Wednesday.

The Stockdale signing has sparked talk of how it affects Dawson’s place in the squad, although Joe Wildsmith’s departure from the club was confirmed on Tuesday.

A former England youth international, Dawson has two more seasons left on his contract from Wednesday and spent the last campaign on loan in League Two at promotion-winning Exeter City, where he was among the club’s star performers.

Speaking to the club’s in-house media team, Moore hinted that no decision has been made on the number one spot and that he expects Dawson, 26, to face the new man 10 years his senior.

“Cameron Dawson returned to us on a 46-game loan which helped Exeter get promoted to our division,” he said. “We have a different back from Cameron Dawson and I’m really happy with that.

“Both goalkeepers are at different places in their careers and both will push each other every step of the way in terms of battling for that number one spot. It will be a battle for the gloves, 100%.”
