It`s taken a day or two but Big Sam has finally got round to addressing the somewhat curious Kieron Dyer state of affairs. With newspapers both locally and nationally suggesting he`s a high priority signing for moneybags West Ham, the gaffer has come out and admitted there will be some face-to-face talks with the midfielder. Sam said:

“I suppose I will have to have a chat and a conversation with Kieron to see if he thinks there is anything in it and if there is, we will discuss it privately from there.

But at the moment, there is no bid from West Ham, so until Alan Curbishley rings me or the chief executive rings (chief operating officer) Russell Cushing, then there would be no discussion.

It has been rumoured in the papers and sometimes there is no smoke without fire. But if there’s a bid going to come in, I would probably expect a phone call either today or over the weekend because they have lost one of their new players.

Whether there is some interest there now, I don’t know. Kieron Dyer is not a player I would particularly want to lose, but one never knows at this stage of the season what’s going to happen.”

Locally, the emphasis from the Journal and Ronnie is that if the right bid came in then the lad would be on his way following the grief he took at the Blackburn and Watford games at the end of last season.
