Cardiff Target Blues U18s Coach Dyer
Monday, 20th May 2019 13:48

Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock is keen to add Blues U18s assistant manager Kieron Dyer to his coaching staff, TWTD understands.

Dyer, 40, played for Warnock at QPR, while his former Newcastle United team-mate and close friend Craig Bellamy is the Bluebirds’ U18s coach.

The 33-times-capped England international is currently assistant manager of Town’s U18s working alongside Adem Atay, their side having reached the Professional Development League Two play-offs this season after finishing second in their division, coincidentally behind Cardiff.

We understand Warnock, whose team will be back in the Championship next season after one year in the Premier League, has made an approach to Town for Dyer, who he previously targeted in the summer of 2017, with a view to him working with his club's U23s.

Ipswich-born Dyer, who previously worked with the Blues’ U16s and was involved with the England U20s set-up earlier this season, is well settled in Suffolk and it appears unlikely that he would make a move to South Wales, however, the former midfielder’s progress as a coach may also have caught the eye of other clubs.

I would have liked to have seen Dyer progress through the coaching ranks here (and I'm sure he would too!), however it seems to be happening very slowly....

I thought Bellamy had been sacked from his position, if so is Dyer his replacement ?

PhilTWTD added 14:17 - May 20
Bellamy hasn't been sacked. There has been an inquiry but Cardiff denied he was going to be sacked, despite reports last week.

Hands Off, these coaches and players are the future of ITFC

Young Kieron was about as good as I have seen at FPR and having met him in recent times I can attest to the fact he has matured into an excellent individual, who clearly is having an impact in coaching....word gets out quickly.

Kieron wants to manage ITFC but it might benefit all if he cuts his teeth somewhere else at a higher level now given PL isn't going anywhere, anytime soon. Kieron was ambitious as a player and will be in management but never doubt how BLUE he is.

hands off our Kieron, he should be next in line to the throne once PL's time is up.

henryblue...I think sept is a bit early for dyer to take over

KD has often spoken of his desire to manage Town one day. To do so he needs as much experience as he can, so if a Cardiff move is another step towards his goal I have not problem with him going and wish him all the luck.

Well dyer has shown before that he has precisely zero loyalty to ITFC so I expect he will be off. Basically using us again

Didn't Dyer once pay out of his own pocket for Ipswich Under-14s to go to Catalonia to play Barcelona Under-14s?

ohmycampo added 18:18 - May 22
I very much doubt it mate ok
