Dyer's Mystery Illness

With Kieron Dyer's transfer to West Ham now looking that it will finally go ahead fans are wondering about The Sunday Mirror's claim that Dyer's medical revealed a 'specific problem'. The Mirror claim that a consultant said that despite the 'problem' Dyer would be able to fulfil a four year contract.

I have read rumours that Dyer has Hepatitis B and West Ham Till I Die mention a liver problem that would involve a transplant later in life. Which actually sounds a little more serious than Hepatitis B.

Presumably it is the same illness that has affected Kieron Dyer for a number of years. In 2005 Newcastle felt forced to inform increasingly frustrated Geordie fans that Dyer was actually suffering from an illness and not just malingering,

"Kieron Dyer has a medical problem which has contributed to his lack of fitness. Unfortunately, he has suffered another reaction."

If it is Hepatitis B then that in itself should not seriously affect Dyer's ability to play football. However Dyer's susceptibility to injuries as well does raise the suspicion that he actually suffers from a debilitating illness.

Whatever it is one thing is certain, the treatment room at West Ham is likely to be a busy place this year.
