QPR on verge of signing ex-Newcastle, West Ham midfielder Dyer

Promoted QPR look set to take a risk with the signing of free agent Kieron Dyer.

The 32-year old former Ipswich Town and Newcastle United midfielder was released by West Ham United at the end of last season and has now agreed personal terms with QPR.

It is believed that the injury-prone Dyer will sign a one-year deal and R's boss Neil Warnock says it is a signing that is worth taking a risk on.

"As far as I'm concerned it's a gamble worth taking," he told the London Evening Standard.

"He really impressed me in training and it looks like he has been working hard on his fitness throughout the summer.

"He has a lot of experience and is desperate to play in the Premier League again.

"I like the hunger he's got and he wants to prove a point. I really appreciate his commitment.

"There were other clubs in for him and he could have earned more money elsewhere, but he wants to play for QPR.

"He wanted to stay in London and I think he can really help us."
