QPR release midfielder Kieron Dyer

Former Ipswich Town favourite Kieron Dyer has been released by Queens Park Rangers.

The midfielder apparently had a clause in his contract which was activated by QPR who said he has left with immediate effect.

Dyer, who returned to Ipswich on loan from West Ham for a month in March 2011, made only four starts for the Londoners and four substitute appearances.

Blighted with injury problems since leaving Ipswich, Dyer picked up an injury after only seven minutes of his QPR debut on the first day of last season and didn’t play again until August last year.

He scored his only goal for the club last weekend in his side’s 1-1 FA Cup third round draw at home to West Brom.

Rangers manager Harry Redknapp told the club’s website: “I’d like to thank Kieron for his services to QPR.

“If he can stay clear of injuries I’m sure there’s clubs out there that will offer him the chance to play football.
