Hammers capture Dyer


Recommended Posts

Kieron Dyer has completed his move from Newcastle to West Ham after the two clubs finally reached an agreement.

 

The England midfielder had looked set to join The Hammers earlier this month after announcing he wanted to leave St James' Park to be closer to his family.

 

The transfer fell through at the last minute when Newcastle changed their valuation of the player, forcing West Ham to reconsider.

 

The two clubs have now settled on a fee, believed to be in the region of £8million, leaving Dyer available to make his West Ham debut against Birmingham on Saturday.

 

"Newcastle United and West Ham have agreed terms and the transfer of Kieron Dyer to West Ham has now been concluded," The Hammers confirmed on their official website.

 

Dyer will be reunited at Upton Park with a number of former Newcastle team-mates.

 

He did not feature in Newcastle's 3-1 victory at Bolton on the opening day of the Premier League season.

BAD BOYS, STICK TOGETHER

 

Women love a bad boy. Sure, any girl will tell you she really wants a polite young man with a sense of humour who'll treat her like a princess, but while you're plucking up the courage to ask if you can help carry her books home from school and help conjugate some French verbs, she's clambered aboard the pillion of a Harley driven by some arrogant, leather-clad, shade-wearing, gum-chewing, tattoo-sporting, cackling miscreant with anything but homework on his mind.

 

Oh yes, your arrogant, leather-clad, shade-wearing, gum-chewing, tattoo-sporting, cackling Fiver knows it all right - women just love a bad boy. And so does Alan Curbishley, if a glance at his West Ham squad is anything to go by.

 

This morning he numbered Anton Ferdinand, Craig Bellamy, Matthew Etherington, Carlton Cole, Bobby Zamora and Lee Bowyer among the deadbeat punks all vying for the limited number of seats at the back of the team bus, and this afternoon he brought another ne'er-do-well into the fold by finally signing Kieron Dyer from Newcastle United for - depending on which club's accountants you're talking to - a bargain/rip-off £6m/£7m.

 

"We did the medical and everything else 10 days ago, and it's not too late for Saturday," said Curbishley, as his sullen new acquisition leaned against a nearby Baby Bentley, refusing to speak and looking decidedly nonplussed. "He played yesterday and Monday for Newcastle reserves. He has been training and playing games - and we will see how he is."

 

Although he may look like Pete Sampras crossed with Noel Gallagher in a bad mood, Dyer is likely to be delighted. His long sought-after move to Big London means he's got his wish of moving closer to his Suffolk-based partner and family. And, as luck would have it, trendy London nightspot Funky Buddha, the kind of shops Roy Keane won't set foot in, and whatever police station the fall-out from this year's West Ham Christmas party ends up in are also among the amenities within easy reach.

Could have been a great player here, couldn't be arsed. If we got £7m for him then that's a deal and a half. Personally, I don't expect him to be any better at West Ham, but still wish him all the best. The cunt.

 

I wish him the best, so long as the best includes another on field fight with Bowyer, both his hamstrings popping (as usual), and then being caught beating up some 17 year old girl in a club with Bellemy. :)

West Ham midfielder Kieron Dyer is considering immediate retirement.

 

The luckless West Ham midfielder, 31, is believed to have confided to friends that he has had enough of his constant battle against injury.

 

If he follows through, he would be the second major star at troubled Upton Park to hang up his boots this season after striker Dean Ashton packed up last year.

 

Hugely popular Dyer, on £60,000-a-week, has played a total of just 18 times since signing for West Ham three years ago for £6million - costing the club £406,000-per-game.

 

 

He last played for the club on December 15 in the 1-1 draw against Bolton. Back then he lasted just 20 minutes before limping off with the latest in a succession of injuries which have blighted his career.

 

West Ham last night played down talk of Dyer packing up the game, insisting he remains on course for a return to training within the next two weeks.

 

But Mirrorsport understands that at least one club that has enquired about taking the former England star on loan this month has been turned away with the reason given that Dyer is considering his future.

 

Dyer has just one more season left on his West Ham contract and would have to come to an agreement with the club were either he, or they,to terminate prematurely.

 

Dyer endured a terrible start to his Upton Park career, suffering a double fracture of the right leg just three games in, during a League Cup tie at Bristol Rovers.

 

One of the most jinxed players the Premier League has ever seen, Dyer went on to miss the rest of the 2007-8 season and made his comeback 17 months later - in January 2009 - as a second half substitute against Barnsley in the FA Cup.

 

Even then, however, his injuries continued in May 2009 when he was ruled out with a hamstring injury. He returned in the first game of this season against Wolves but had problems with injuries after that game too.

 

Injuries kept him out of the Newcastle side for sections of the 2006/7 season and only three times in his career has Dyer made more than 30 appearances in one season - two of which were in the 1990's at Ipswich.
