West Ham Chairman David Gold Reveals Kieron Dyer’s 30 Appearances Cost Club £10 Million in Wages

Kieron Dyer entered the I’m a Celeb jungle on Tuesday night, marking a bizarre career change for the ex-England international.

Dyer was once hotly tipped to be a massive star for his country after breaking through at Ipswich and making his name in a Newcastle side which qualified for the Champions League, and whilst he still enjoyed a decent career injuries sadly blighted and hampered his early promise.

Dyer became infamous for suffering injuries particularly towards the end of his career, and the chairman at one of his former club’s has revealed the staggering cost of signing Dyer, with little received in return.

West Ham supremo David Gold was clearly tuned into ITV on Sunday night to watch his former employees entrace, but took to Twitter to set the record straight on the Hammers’ financial investment in the winger…

£10 million in wages for a measly 30 appearances?! That’s when you know the money in England is verging on out of control.

In fairness to Dyer, he entered the jungle without taking a potentially lucrative fee for the stint, donating his rumoured £200,000 wages from the show and donating it to a charity that specialises in helping families recover from still births.

Nice touch, Kieron.
