Kieron Dyer has spoken at his relief at having finally put his long term injury problems behind him.

And whilst the pacey midfielder has suffered two freak injuries in recent weeks the weak hamstring which threatened to bring an end to his career seems to have finally healed.

Speaking to the Newcastle Journal, Dyer said: ‘My hamstrings have been the main problem for me for almost two years but I’ve not had any trouble with them. I was finally given the time to get my body right and solve the problem, that’s the biggest relief. My body seems to be fine, hopefully my bad luck is also behind me and I can get on with my career again.’

He added ‘As strange as it might seem, I’ve actually been relieved with these latest injuries

“Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been gutted to miss more games because of them, my comeback has been stop-start so far, which is frustrating. But the thing is they have both been freak injuries, not physical problems.’
