We just read the Sunday Mirror’s sensational story that says Kieron Dyer failed his medical at West Ham United.
When you actually read the story, the Sunday Mirror in fact says they got the OK from a medical consultant to go ahead with the deal. The story they print does not support their sensational headline.
Sorry to be so picky.
Kieron Dyer – transfer not held up because of his medical condition
The Sunday Mirror says that Kieron Dyer failed a West Ham medical in the countdown to his aborted Â£6M transfer just over a week ago. It goes on to say the Sunday Mirror can reveal the incredible medical background to the deal . Wow.
Dyer underwent a stringent medical after agreeing a four-year contract with West Ham. The Sunday Mirror then says they are aware of the specific problem that was spotted but have chosen not to make this public. Dyer’s case was then referred by West Ham to a consultant who analyzed the player’s medical history.
The consultant advised West Ham that in his opinion the Dyer deal could be completed and the England star would be able to fulfill a four-year contract.
So what’s the big deal? We would take a wild guess and say it’s selling newspapers.
