KIERON Dyer admits that he “feels amongst friends,” being back at his home town club of Ipswich Town.

Dyer was facing the press for the first time this lunchtime, following his arrival on a one-month deal from West Ham on Friday and then 72 minutes of action in the 0-0 draw at Leeds on Saturday.

Dyer said: “I know most of the faces here and I know most of the faces at the training ground.

“So it was very easy to come back and fit straight in.

“I feel very stiff after the weekend, because it was my first game in three months. I’d only been training a week prior to that, and mentally it was tough and draining, how it all came around so quickly.

“But I’ve got 70 minutes in the bank now and over the next few games I’ll start to get fitter and you will see the real me,” added Dyer.
