Watford secure signing of Leicester City winger Lloyd Dyer
Leicester City winger Lloyd Dyer will join the Hornets this summer, the Watford Observer understands.
We understand the experienced player has already signed a three-year contract with the Golden Boys.
The deal won’t be formally completed until the transfer window re-opens on July 1.
Dyer was a regular for Leicester this season, making 46 appearances in all competitions, but he turned down the offer of a one-year extension as he wanted a longer contract.
The winger has made 267 appearances for the Foxes during his six years at the club.
He started his career at West Bromwich Albion but didn’t make his debut until he was 20 years old in 2002.
A month-long, seven-game loan spell at KIdderminter Harriers at the beginning of the following season helped his development and he went on to make 18 outings for West Brom in the second half of the season as they secured promotion to the Premier League.
The winger, who can also play at wing-back, was limited to just one start and four substitute outings in the top flight at the beginning of the next campaign and finished the season on loan at Coventry City, where he made six starts.
The 2005/6 season was initially spent on loan at Queens Park Rangers but then he joined Millwall on a free transfer, only to ask to be released from the contract two months later due to ‘family reasons’.
Dyer joined MK Dons on a free transfer in 2006 and had 47 run-outs in his first season, as his side lost in the League Two play-offs. He then scored 11 goals in 50 appearances as MK Dons won the title and also the Football League Trophy.
His form persuaded Leicester to sign the player on a free transfer and he secured consecutive league titles as the Foxes won League One, with Dyer again scoring 11 goals – this time in 51 outings.
Dyer has been a regular during his time at Leicester and has not made less than 37 appearances during each of his six seasons at the club.
It was Dyer’s impressive strike which secured the Championship title for Leicester last month.
