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 his career was in 2007 when he broke his leg 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, he was also playing regularly for the England national side and went onto win a total of 33 caps and was also a member of the squad which went to the 2002 FIFA World Cup.

Since retiring from playing, Dyer has pursued a career in the coaching side of the game and returned to former club Ipswich Town where he took charge of the under-16’s before moving up to work as assistant coach of the under-18’s side.
He left in August 2019 in a bid to further his career in management at the top level of the game.
Away from football, he was one of the contestants in the 2015 edition of ITV’s television programme ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here‘ where he formed an unlikely alliance with Lady C and Chris Eubank.
Dyer finished the show in a respectable fourth place and 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.
He has also done some pundit work and made his first appearance on BT Sport in 2016 as one of the panel on their Saturday ‘Score’ show.
