Nathan Dyer: Joins Leicester on season-long loan from Swansea

Leicester have made Swansea winger Nathan Dyer their seventh signing of the summer on a season-long loan deal.

The 27-year-old has been a regular at Swansea for more than six seasons, but his sole start this term came in the Capital One Cup.

Dyer scored in that 3-0 win over York but was back on the bench for Sunday’s 2-1 defeat of Manchester United at the Liberty Stadium.

And Swansea have now sanctioned a loan move to Premier League rivals Leicester for Dyer, who becomes the Foxes’ seventh signing of the summer.

Dyer has played in over 130 Premier League matches but his only appearance so far this season came as a sub during Swansea’s 2-0 home win over Newcastle.

Asked about the loan move by the Leicester website, Dyer said: “It feels brilliant.

“The gaffer wanted me to come here and play some football, and help the team keep progressing like they have been.

“It’s good to finally come here. The facilities are amazing. Massive training ground and, speaking to the physios, they have got everything you need.

“Everything is at your disposal, so I am looking forward to getting started.

“The manager [Claudio Ranieri] has welcomed me and I will give him everything I have got.”
