IPSWICH Town boss Roy Keane has rubbished rumours linking Kieron Dyer with a return to his old club.

Midfielder Dyer, whose career has been ravaged by injuries in recent seasons, left Portman Road in the summer of 1999 to join Newcastle for �6m.

The 31-year-old moved on to West Ham for another �6m fee, but has only started five league games in the last two-and-a-half years for the Hammers, due to injuries.

“It's utter rubbish,” insisted Keane, with reference to Town being linked with Dyer. “He's still injured, isn't he? Kieron Dyer is not a player that I'm interested in, at this moment in time.

“If we were interested in a player, then we'd contact the club.”
