West Ham want Dyer to prove fitness before offering new deal

West Ham will offer Kieron Dyer a new contract, provided the injury prone player can prove his fitness over the coming season. The former England international has been blighted by injury setbacks during his time at Upton Park with his future in the game being questioned at times.

But the 31-year-old midfielder, whose current deal expires at the end of the season, has started the last two Premier League games for Avram Grant's men.

And co-owner David Gold has admitted the club would be ready to offer Dyer fresh terms if he can stay clear of the treatment room.

Gold said: "If he plays two thirds of the games this season, why wouldn't we want him to stay at the club for the rest of his career?

"A new contract is certainly something we would look into."
