Lloyd Dyer, Watford to Birmingham City; loan
Dyer is a pacey winger with loads of experience at the Championship level. With Birmingham City stabilizing midtable after successive brushes with relegation, acquiring Dyer on loan from Watford is a very good move. In his first match, Dyer already had an impact setting up the Blues lone goal in Saturday’s 2-1 FA Cup Fourth Round loss to local rivals West Brom.
The player was a key contributor to Leicester City’s promotion to the Premier League one season ago. Dyer’s spark down the wing is noticeably missing from the Foxes side this season. Manager Nigel Pearson did try and retain Dyer’s services, but with the club moving to the Premier League, the player opted to stay in the Championship for guaranteed playing time when he signed with Watford.
