Bolton Wanderers sign Lloyd Dyer

Bolton Wanderers are delighted to confirm the signing of Lloyd Dyer on a short-term deal.

The Birmingham-born star joins Phil Parkinson’s men having previously been on the books of Burton Albion for whom he netted 14 goals in 80 appearances.

The experienced wideman started his career with West Bromwich Albion in 2001 and enjoyed loan spells with Kidderminster Harriers, Coventry City and QPR before leaving the Hawthorns to join Millwall.

He enjoyed a two-year spell at MK Dons, where he found the back of the net on 16 occasions from 86 appearances.

He penned a three-year deal with Leicester City in 2008 and spent six seasons at the King Power Stadium before featuring for the likes of Watford, Birmingham City and Burnley.

Wanderers manager Phil Parkinson said: “We are pleased to welcome Lloyd to Bolton Wanderers.

“With Sammy’s injury lay off being longer than we first anticipated, it was important that we have more options.

“Lloyd’s experience of playing as a left wing back will give us more cover if we decide to play with a back three.”
