Big Sam on Dyer:

He (Dyer) said his goodbyes to the staff and the lads on Thursday morning.We are satisfied with the deal and we wish him all the best at West Ham. It's better that we resolve these problems by letting the player move away from the club. We got the right deal for us and in the end for Kieron as well and we move on. He's closer to his family now and that's what he wanted.'

Dyer on his move:

'A couple of weeks ago I thought it was the end of the move and I was devastated. But thankfully the two clubs have come to an agreement and I am finally a West Ham player.

I think it was well documented that I wanted to be nearer to my family, but I also see West Ham as a Club that is really going places, they have shown great ambition with the other players they have brought in and I just love the clear hunger of the Club to be successful.

A lot of the players that have signed have a bit of a point to prove as have the players who came so close to relegation last season so everyone shares that hunger which can only be a good thing.

I already know a few of the lads here like Wrighty and Bellars so I obviously did talk to them before I made the decision to join as it was never going to be a decision I was going to take lightly. They all had great things to say about the Club and the manager and all in all once I had spoken to them I made my mind up straight away.

It is probably one of my strengths - my ability to hit the ground running, so even though I have had a bit of a stop start pre-season if the manager asks me to play at Birmingham on Saturday I would be totally up for the challenge.

I think the gaffer sees me as quite a versatile player who can play through the centre whether that be off the strikers or as a central midfielder that is obviously up to him but if I am required to step in to cover for any of the wide players that would be okay because I am comfortable on the left or the right and I happy at full-back as well.'

Alan Curbishley on his new signing:

'We're delighted to get the player in. If you look at his history over the last couple of years he missed a lot of games with his hamstring - but once he got it sorted, he played 33 games and scored eight goals.
He also played for England against Spain, Brazil and Andorra - so he is a current England international, and we are delighted to have him on board. Common sense has prevailed, and Kieron is looking forward to joining us.'
