Kieron Dyer Will Be Staying at Newcastle

While both the Evening Chronicle and Daily Mirror – and maybe others – have been reporting that West Ham will be going after Newcastle’s Kieron Dyer – we think it’s all paper talk and Kieron Dyer will in fact be going nowhere.

Sam Allardyce has already stated that he came to Newcastle because of the opportunity to coach players like Kieron Dyer and it’s not hard to see that both men get on really well together and have a mutual respect.

Why would Sam ever want to sell Dyer?


Kieron Dyer

Dyer’s future on Tyneside has been the subject of much debate for a long time – and while his form last season was a little erratic – he seems to have at least finally overcome his injury woes. He has an even better chance now under Allardyce and his scientific methods to remain further injury free next season.

Kieron has told his team-mates he is not thinking about a move and Sam Allardyce will no doubt have his own ideas for how to use Dyer and get the very best out of him.

A source close to Dyer told the Journal today:

“Kieron does not know anything about a move to West Ham, it is not something which concerns him at the moment.”

“There have been stories linking him with a number of clubs this summer, but he is only thinking about Newcastle United.”

“Sam Allardyce has made a very good impression and he is happy with his plans for the side. A lot has changed behind the scenes and Kieron is convinced they will have a positive impact on the team’s fortunes.”

“It is that time of year when players are always being linked with moves, but Kieron expects to be a Newcastle player next season.”

“He is not unhappy.”

That doesn’t sound like a player who wants to leave or is in any way unhappy at Newcastle. We think the first meeting Big Sam had at the England B training camp with Owen and Dyer impressed both players greatly – and they are both excited about the new season.

We are looking forward to Dyer becoming the player he can be – and that will be playing for a resurgent Newcastle United under Sam Allarydye and the new owner. Kieron has a big part still to play at the club – and he knows it. Any talk about Kieron leaving is only wishful thinking on the part of clubs seeking talented players like Dyer – who we think could well be a revelation under Big Sam’s guidance.

    when dyer plays well, he plays well. Can be a match winner and an important method of the squad this year. But if he’s ginuwinely unhappy and a decent price comes in (£8-10m) then would sell him as CM is a position that can easily be replaced. Give him to January and see how he does.

    agree with you aaron d – give Dyer app. 6 months to prove that he deliver the goods on the pitch.. if not then ship him off to some of the clubs paying way of the odds for half-decent players.. If Chopra (God bless the lad) is worth a potential 5m – what is Dyer worth? 15m?? Go-on Keano – splash the cash..

    You would’nt even contemplate on selling Dyer with the number of players in our squad,plus he’s another player who owes alot to NUFC. When he is fit and raring to go he has amazing talent & pace and he’s exciting to watch.He can run with the ball which very few players in the premiership can do, also he can change a game at anytime.We don’t need to sell anymore players, we need to buy Look at spurs, their side is full of youthful talent another team we’ll have to catch up if we don’t invest in transfers soon. Plus i hope we beat them to the signature of CURTIS DAVIES>

    Actually I would contemplate selling Dyer, because a) in spite of what everyone says our squad is a decent size in terms of numbers – one of the reasons it appears so thin is because we have so many attacking central midfielder – his best position.

    West Ham have offered £4m apparently, not even worth selling for that, a replacement for £4m could be an average championship player. Keep him, now he seems to be finally over his injury problems and at 27/28 should be at his peak, i can see him having a good season.
