Blow for Newcastle as West Ham refuse to meet Dyer deal
Now Ashley has left Sam Allardyce in a huge quandry. He has a player with undoubted talent, who was only this week the target of two separate fan attacks and does not want to stay at the club due to personal problems. What's more, Allardyce has already played down the loss of Dyer when it appeared the deal was on, prior to Ashley's interference.
If Dyer was unhappy at Newcastle before, he may now be looking up the number of the Samaratans hotline.
