No Talks With Dyer About Rejoining Town
Friday, 25th Jan 2013 06:02

Former Blue Kieron Dyer was training with the Town squad yesterday but manager Mick McCarthy says he has had no discussions with the ex-England man about a third spell at Portman Road. Dyer was released by QPR at the beginning of the month and is understood to be interesting a number of clubs at home and abroad.

Speaking at yesterday’s pre-match press conference, McCarthy confirmed that Dyer, who trained with the Blues U18s last week, had joined in with the senior squad: “He’s training with us today. “

But the Town boss played down the chances of the free agent joining the club, although without completely dismissing the possibility: “I’ve never had any discussions with him about that. He’s having discussions with other people, apparently.”

He added: “He started here and he’s come back, I don’t know if he still lives around here but he asked me if he could train.”

As has previously been said on here, offer him a pay-as-you-play deal alongside a coaching role, maybe for the younger /youth players. He's obviously still got a passion for the place!

Truly great player but he left here the first time injured and I doubt he is fit enough for even the Championship.

No thank you, an injury prone has been, long past his best before date. Wouldnt touch him with a barge pole.

He is injury prone and way past his sell by date but he still has more to offer than any of our current midfield. Also he's scored more than our two widemen this season even though they've hardly missed a game !

put him on pay-as-you-play deal...

If he could get anywhere close to how he was 10 years ago our midfield would be greatly bolstered and would give us the drive we need! Very unlikely though!

If he can prove his fitness then pay as you play would be an option. Win win situtation for both parties.

Wouldn't even want him on a pay-as-you-play deal. Has had little / no football over last few season and therefore can't be match-fit, let alone physically fit. Would be a backwards step - when we need to move forward.
