And Curbishley himself has been very vocal in his interest for the 28 year old midfielder. Curbishley told the Sunday Mirror:

"We have not made any contact with Newcastle although I understand Sam [Allardyce] has said, 'there is no smoke without fire'," said Curbs.

"Perhaps he wants to leave. I would not rule out a move for him because I think he is a very exciting player."

Sam Allardyce has held talks with Dyer over the last few days and it's expected that the former Bolton boss is willing to let him go. The fee could be in the region of £5million.
