TRANSFER DEADLINE DAY: Nathan Dyer completes Leicester loan
1st September 2015
Swans winger Nathan Dyer has joined fellow Barclays Premier League side Leicester City on loan for the remainder of the season.
Dyer has made two appearances for the Swans this season, his latest coming in the Capital One Cup win over York City in which he opened the scoring.
The arrival of Andre Ayew this summer and the form of Jefferson Montero has seen the 27-year-old slip down the order in terms of team selection.
He joins a Leicester side which is third in the table and level on points with the Swans.
Dyer has made 271 appearances - scoring 31 goals - in all competitions since originally joining the Swans on loan from Southampton.
Having made his debut in a 2-0 win at Burnley in 2009, the Swans paid a then club-record equalling fee of £400,000 for his services that summer.
The winger was named Supporters Player of the Year as the Swans clinched promotion to the Premier League in 2010-11, and then followed that up with six goals - five in the top flight - as his stock continued to rise.
Dyer also played a key role in the Swans' Capital One Cup success as he scored in the 3-1 win at holders Liverpool in the quarter-final before netting twice and being named man-of-the-match in the 5-0 rout of Bradford in the final at Wembley in February 2013.
Last season he scored five goals in 37 appearances in all competitions as the Swans secured a record position and points tally in the Premier League.
