Dyer’s dream

KIERON Dyer always wanted to play in the Premier League with Ipswich Town, and that dream is not yet dead.

KIERON Dyer always wanted to play in the Premier League with Ipswich Town, and that dream is not yet dead.

It won’t happen in the near future, because Town are a daunting 14 points adrift of the top six with just 10 games remaining, but there is every chance that Dyer’s current one-month loan stay from West Ham is just a taster for something more permanent.

Dyer, although 32, wants to make up for lost time, after so many years of struggling with injuries, and that could mean an eventual return to Portman Road on a permanent basis. His current contract at Upton Park expires this summer, so he has a chance to pick and choose as a free agent.

He could stay at West Ham, he could move abroad, or he could drop down into the Championship. But one thing is for sure – his beloved Ipswich Town will never be far from his thoughts.

“There’s a couple of clauses in my contract, but I think they will be sorted out and I’ll be free to decide where to go next year.
