Newcastle United boss Sam Allardyce has included Kieron Dyer in his squad for tomorrow's Premiership opener at Bolton Wanderers.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "Kieron Dyer is a Newcastle United player until West Ham see the light and resolve the situation.

"He is fit and well and has had a proper pre-season, and he will be involved in our squad for the game at Bolton.

"Kieron has to go to Bolton and do what is best for both himself and the club. He is contracted to this football club for the next couple of years unless there is a change in the situation.

"If there is a change we will deal with it accordingly."
