Kieron Dyer's agents have denied reports of a bust-up with West Ham United manager Avram Grant.
The 31-year-old, who is currently struggling with a thigh injury, did not make the journey to Stoke City but insists the decision to omit him did not lead to an altercation with his manager.
"Kieron Dyer read with concern and bemusement reports on Saturday morning in several newspapers that he supposedly had a "row" or "bust-up" with West Ham manager Avram Grant," Graham Shear of BLP Solicitors told Press Association Sport.
"Kieron confirmed that this is untrue and that there has been no dispute of any nature with Avram Grant about Kieron's selection to play against Stoke today or about any other topic.
"Kieron is uncertain why he was not selected for the squad and, whilst he does have a thigh injury, if he had been selected, he would have willingly joined the squad on the trip to Stoke today."
