Dyer move could net Blues £1million

IF Kieron Dyer chooses to succumb to the no doubt tempting offers from Manchester United or Chelsea, then his former club Ipswich Town could benefit to the tune of up to £1m, writes Derek Davis.

A price war to land the England midfielder would push any transfer fee up and with a sell-on clause, believed to be around five per cent, would land the Blues with some much-needed extra cash.

There is no guarantee Dyer would be prepared to leave Newcastle United with many people believing Sir Bobby Robson's side have a realistic chance of having a tilt at the title. But ambitious Dyer is known to have fancied a move to the current Premiership champions for some time and having lost out on Ronaldinho to Barcelona, Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to make a move for the 25-year-old.

Dyer joined Newcastle from Ipswich in the summer of 1999 for £6m and he is expected to return to Portman Road next month when England play Croatia.
