Injury-hit West Ham midfielder ruled out with snuffle

West Ham midfielder Kieron Dyer’s return from a 16-month injury layoff has been delayed after he picked up a bout of man flu. The ex-Newcastle man played 45 minutes of a reserve match last week but had to be substituted as the virus began to take its toll. He missed the following six days of training as he recovered from the illness.

Dyer, who turns 30 over Christmas, played just three games for the Hammers before suffering a horrific leg break in a Carling Cup match against Colchester in August 2007. See the incident after the jump…
