Dyer’s capital move likely to be resurrected

Recommended Posts

Kieron Dyer has been omitted from Newcastle United’s squad for their match away to Bolton Wanderers today and the England international is likely to complete his controversial transfer to West Ham United. Relations between the clubs soured last week when the deal collapsed, but Dyer and Nolberto Solano, his teammate, are both expected to leave Tyneside.

 

Both players have requested a move for personal reasons. In the case of Solano - a popular figure among Newcastle supporters - the development is surprising, but the Peruvian is undergoing difficulties with his family and is said to favour a move to London or Spain. Dyer’s children live in Ipswich. It is not beyond possibility that the pair may renew acquaintances at Upton Park.

 

Mike Ashley, the Newcastle owner, raised his club’s asking price for Dyer from £6 million to £8 million in protest at West Ham’s alleged conduct over the matter and that appeared to block the deal, but a compromise beckons. A similar amount for both playersI - Solano is 33 this year and about to enter the final year of his contract - would equate to decent business.

 

Sam Allardyce has backed Ashley’s stance, but he has no use for unsettled players and neither is expected to figure at the Reebok Stadium. As far as Dyer is concerned, after the disappointment of seeing his proposed transfer collapse, as well as being a target of abuse by Newcastle supporters, the manager does not consider him in the necessary frame of mind to play.

 

With Albert Luque expected to leave for Levante, there may be a number of departures in the coming days and, as things stand, replacements are a distant prospect. “There are no new faces,” Allardyce said. “This week has ended up with a little frustration at the fact that a couple of big targets have not come off and at this stage look like they won’t.”

 

With Michael Owen, Joey Barton and Shay Given injured and Scott Parker, the erstwhile skipper, having decamped to West Ham, Allardyce will name Gérémi, his signing from Chelsea, as captain for the Bolton fixture. He is expected to field a 4-3-3 formation, fitness permitting, with Alan Smith selected in midfield and Obafemi Martins and James Milner operating wide of Mark Viduka in attack.

i would be gutted to see solano leave. Top player, top professional and for his great attitude and commitment to newcastle he deserves to leave should he wish. However, i doubt his apparent reasons for wanting to leave. Really hope the story's a load of bullshite.

Id also be gutted to see Nobby leave, not just for sentimental reasons but he is still a damn fine footballer and one of the most skillful Ive seen. I do think he can still offer something to the team.

 

But, if Sam has no plans for him then I suppose fair enough. I would feel disappointed like if nobby had actually asked to leave.

I find this sudden desire to leave from Nobby very puzzling ;)

 

Thought his family was up here by now etc etc... one of the main reasons he was so glad to come back... Plus he can still bring a lot to the team.

So are Wist Am now going to pay the £8 million but get a free Nobby thrown in as a sweetener?

That's what it sounds like, doesn't it?

Why is Nobbys family also unsettled all of a sudden? Has BS said something to all of them - thrown a brick with a note through their windows or something? Like already said, I was certain he moved back upto the north-east as they liked it up here.

I hope one of them will stay, we simply can't afford to let both of them go.

 

 

That's just it losing both we lose not only pace in Dyer's case and vision in Nobby's but 2 bodies and 2 players that can cover a a lot of other positions.

 

Be hard to replace ALL that for 8 million (esepcially at this late date) - why would Nobby suddenly decide to do this? Frankly we own him nothing if he's prepared to leave us in the lurch like this.

His wife took his kids down south when they divorced.

He shouldn't go chatting up young ladies in the cooperage then he wouldn't have got a divorce.
