Newcastle United boss Sam Allardyce has had a dig at Kieron Dyer after he left the club for West Ham citing homesickness.

Allardyce said: "People always find a change in life can be very difficult at first, but you have to cope with it, certainly when you have a short career in football.

"You can always go back and live where you want to live when you've finished playing and, certainly in the case of today's Premiership footballers, live very comfortably for the rest of your life."
