Former English International Needs Liver Transplant

Former English international Kieron Dyer needs a liver transplant. The current Ipswich Town Under-23 coach was diagnosed with PSC a few years ago, a chronic disease that affects the liver.

The news was confirmed by himself in statements to the media of the club that is participating in the Championship.

“Unfortunately I was diagnosed with liver disease a couple of years ago. I knew that one day I would need a transplant. Next week I will receive the results of the exams I performed and know when I have to undergo the transplant. I see myself as a positive person and I believe I will recover from this setback. I am grateful to the club, the fans and the general public for the messages of support I received. I also ask you to respect my privacy and that of my family during this period,” he said.

Dier, 42, played 435 games as a professional at clubs like Newcastle, West Ham, Ipswich, QPR and Middlesbrough, having also worn the ‘Three Lions’ national team jersey on 33 occasions.
