West Ham confirm double leg fracture for Dyer

West Ham United have revealed Kieron Dyer has suffered a double leg fracture after breaking down in last night's Carling Cup tie at Bristol Rovers.

The recent £6million signing from Newcastle was caught by Rovers defender Joe Jacobson early in the Hammers' 2-1 win.

He was stretchered from the pitch at the Memorial Stadium, and a series of X-rays have revealed the 28-year-old fractured the tibia and fibula in his right leg.

A statement on club website said: "It is too early to say at this stage how long the player will be out for as this will become clearer once the first stage of surgery is completed."
