Dyer reportedly released by West Ham

KIERON Dyer and Matthew Upson have been released by West Ham United, it has been reported.

Dyer, who spent a month on loan at Ipswich Town in March, and former Suffolk schoolboy Upson have not been offered new deals by the newly-relegated Hammers.

Blues boss Paul Jewell might now consider offering Dyer a contract, possibly on a pay-as-you-play deal given the 32-year-old’s much-publicised injury problems.

Upson is expected to move to another club in the Premier League while West Ham, now preparing for life in the Championship, have reportedly offered new deals to Jonathan Spector and Danny Gabbidon.
