Brewers close to a Dyer deal
Lloyd Dyer, who made just three substitute appearances for Burnley against Birmingham City, Middlesbrough and Charlton Athletic, before being released, is reportedly close to a deal with newly promoted Championship club Burton Albion.
Dyer signed in February having previously been at Watford and eventually won a place on the bench. For his performance at Birmingham alone his signing proved a success but, following the promotion, he was released at the end of his short term contract.
To keep fit in pre-season, he’s been training with West Brom’s under-21 squad but played for Burton this weekend in a friendly against Matlock. Despite being behind the other players in terms of fitness, he showed enough to suggest he’ll be a good acquisition in terms of his pace, direct running and use of the ball.
Manager Nigel Clough said after the game that there was a good chance of concluding a deal. “We’ve hopefully got a deal sorted out with Lloyd,” he said. “There’s just one or two little bits of paperwork to sort out. I think he’s signing a one year deal with us. At 33 years old, his experience will be vital for us throughout the season.”Share this page :
