Dyer Gone, Nelsen Going
QUEENS Park Rangers announced the departure of Kieron Dyer and impending departure of Ryan Nelsen
Dyer, signed in the summer of 2011 on a free transfer, has been limited to five appearances for Rangers rather inevitably owing to injury. Whenever on the pitch Dyer has proved useful but his outings were all too fleeting.
He signed off in style with a fine equaliser against West Bromwich Albion to earn an FA Cup replay, as Harry Redknapp opted to activate a release clause in his one-year contract signed in the summer.
Nelsen meanwhile has decided to leave and pursue a managerial career with MLS side Toronto FC in a move that will see him terminate his playing career with QPR. Quite when this will happen is open to debate.
Redknapp is hoping to strengthen his defensive options, which many free up the defender who has a contract until the end of the season.
He has made 18 appearances for QPR since his free transfer move from Tottenham Hotspur - scoring once. He will be a big loss for Rangers, widely regarded as the most consistent player this season.
