Ipswich Town have revealed Under 23s boss Kieron Dyer is currently in hospital undergoing tests.

A brief statement on the club website reads: "The club can confirm that Town U23 manager Kieron Dyer is currently undertaking tests in hospital.

"Everyone at Ipswich Town Football Club sends their best wishes to Kieron at this time.

"We ask everyone to respect Kieron’s privacy, and we will be making no further comment on the matter."

The reason for Dyer's admission to hospital is not clear.

The former England international was recently back in the public eye, taking part in Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins. Dyer left the show, televised this Autumn but filmed around a year ago, after suffering a collapsed lung.

He returned to Portman Road to once again coach Town's Under 23s soon after filming, at the end of 2020, and took on a prominent role with Town's first-team during the early weeks of Paul Cook's reign before reverting to coach the Blues' young players this summer.
