Newcastle United are said to be interested in signing 27 year-old Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer, who has been at the south Wales club since he signed on from Southampton six years ago, and the right winger still has two years left on his contract at the Swans.
Nathan Dyer – Newcastle interested
Swansea City have signed former Newcastle target Andre Ayew as a free agent from Marseilles this summer, and so Nathan may have trouble getting too many games next season.
Nathan was born in Trowbridge, Wiltshire and signed on at Southampton when he was just seven years old and he came through their famous Academy.
He had loan spells at Burnley, Sheffield United and Swansea before finally signing on at Swansea in 2009 for £400K.
But we wonder if we got Nathan in whether it would improve the Newcastle squad much – always assuming of course there may be some truth in the report.
Newcastle are reported to be interested in signing 20 year-old Argentine winger Lucas Ocampos and he would cost around £8.5M – so he would be a better signing than Dyer.
In fact we be surprised if Newcastle are interested in the 27 year-old Swansea player.
Nathan Dyer is also said to be interesting Sunderland and Norwich City, and hes played 269 games for Swansea with 30 goals and 29 assists.
That includes 37 appearances last season with 5 goals and 3 assists and he would probably cost around £3M to £4M.
