Dyer Back for West Ham

Kieron Dyer insists he has returned to full fitness. Dyer had a few minutes of playing time in West Ham's 1-1 draw at Blackburn and played in a behind doors friendly against Chelsea.

"The friendly game against Chelsea in particular was very pleasing, because I played 60 minutes and didn't feel any problems afterwards. I had no aches or pains at all, which was a great sign for me," Dyer says on the West Ham official website.

"Before, after games, I would be throwing ice on my shins because they would be throbbing, but now for the first time, that didn't happen and it feels good.

"When I came back earlier in the year (against Barnsley in the FA Cup) I could hardly move for the next couple of days, but I didn't get that this time around.

"I feel so much better now. In the Chelsea game I did a lot of running and it's the fittest I have felt for a long time. It showed my legs are, finally after what has been a very long lay-off, getting used to the workload again.

"These things happen in football and I honestly believe I can bring some more pace to the side. If I can get a few more run-outs before the end of the season, then next season will hopefully be the one were everyone will see the real me."

thats great news if we can get him playing for the remainder as we badly need a creative force in the midfield.
