As mentioned before <u> can represent [ɪʊ] in MC and dyw may be an old accusative (?) of dydh ~ dedh. I would say the LC form is either a reanalysis of dyw > dedh with dh dropped, or a contraction of dyw and gool. I’d be happy to write degol, which is permitted by the SWF Glossary.

And how interesting that BM has <u>... One might almost suggest ‘deugol’, to reflect the Middle and Late attestations.
