West Ham target Dyer says goodbye to Newcastle

Kieron Dyer is expected to join West Ham United today after saying his farewells to Newcastle teammates at training yesterday.

The Journal Newcastle and West Ham have agreed a £7m compromise fee for the unsettled midfielder after negotiations broke down a fortnight ago.

The transfer has yet to be completed and although Upton Park officials were last night urging caution, no further hitches are expected. Dyer - who has passed a stringent medical at a London hospital - will be relieved that the matter is nearing an end having found himself in limbo in recent days.
