Dyer signs new Burton deal
Last week we reported that two former Clarets had both been offered new deals by Burton Albion after the Staffordshire club confirmed their place in the Championship for a second season.
The two are Marvin Sordell and Lloyd Dyer with Burton confirming today that Dyer has signed a deal to keep him at the Pirelli Stadium until the end of next season.
Dyer, now aged 34, was a short term signing for the Clarets in the 2015/16 season and made three substitute appearances at Birmingham, at home to Middlesbrough and at Charlton before being released.
That led to him joining Burton in July last year and he said: “I thoroughly enjoyed it last year. When I signed, everyone said we were going to get relegated but we didn’t and that was a massive achievement for us.
“I never thought we would get relegated. We have a great team spirit and that was what got us through. We also have great ability in the squad and people underestimated us. It was a good season for the club and when I checked I found out that I had equalled the most goals I have scored in the Championship so overall it has been a good season for me as well.”
Burton are the eleventh club Dyer has played league football for. He played in 42 of their 46 league games last season, scoring seven goals, and next season should see his total appearances pass 450 in league football since he made his debut as a substitute for Kidderminster, during a loan from West Brom, against Bristol Rovers in September 2003.Share this page :
