Bling King for the Lane
As Vital Newcastle reported earlier in the week, there have been rumours flying about that the King de la Bling, Kieron Dyer, is looking to leave SJP in the summer and freshen up (keep it real etc…). With his testimonial two years away, and a healthy crowd of about 10 people expected, he seems to be ready to cut his ties with the club and join up with his good friend, lookalike and equally as overrated a footballer Jermaine 'JJ` Jenas, away from the goldfish bowl and Luke Edwards at the Journal.
Naturally his 80 clicks worth of wages seem to be throwing a spanner in the works with a lot of the papers, especially given that Robbie Keane earns just over half that as their top earner. £6m has also been mentioned as a fee, which would be as helpful to Glenn`s rebuilding plans as shifting our 2nd top earner and getting Sidwell in on a free. This would make far better business sense than keeping a player who goes hiding at every available opportunity (except when the papers come calling, natch).
Please God let there be some truth in this…
