Where is Kieron Dyer now?
Former Newcastle United and Ipswich Town midfielder Kieron Dyer, finally hung up his boots in 2013 after a short spell with Middlesbrough.
The beginning of the end of Dyer’s career was when he broke his leg in 2007 whilst playing for West Ham United and he unfortunately never managed to play a string of consecutive games again.
Best remembered for his days on Tyneside with Newcastle United, Dyer was an important member of the side which finished fourth, third and fifth under Bobby Robson during the early 2000’s.
During this period, Dyer was also playing regularly for the England national side and went onto win a total of 33 caps.
Since retiring from playing, Dyer has pursued a career in the coaching side of the game and is currently working at the Ipswich Town academy with their under 16’s academy side.
Away from football, Dyer has been seen on our screens on ITV’s television programme ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here‘ when he entered as one of the show’s contestants in November 2015.
Forming an unlikely alliance with Lady C and Chris Eubank, Dyer finished the show in a respectable fourth place.
He donated his undisclosed appearance fee to The Jude Brady Foundation, which aims to raise awareness of stillbirth and neonatal death.
This was the second year running a former Premier League footballer has appeared on the show following the success of Jimmy Bullard in 2014.
In 2016, Kieron Dyer was a member of the England Soccer Legends team in the Soccer Aid game at Old Trafford.
In the same year he also made his first appearance on BT Sport as one of their pundits for their Saturday ‘Score’ show.
