- Video report by ITV News Anglia's Donovan Blake
It was a career which ultimately didn't deliver as much as many expected, but it's fair to say that Kieron Dyer still achieved things that other players could only dream of.
Born in Ipswich, Dyer went on to become a full England international and spent many years in the Premier League - although injuries and misdemeanours off the pitch, (and even on one occasion on it), meant he never fulfilled his true potential.
At the age of 39, he has now released his autobiography titled: 'Old too soon, smart too late.'
In the book, he lifts the lid on that famous scrap with Lee Bowyer at Newcastle United, his relationship with Sir Bobby Robson and his regrets over his actions as a young professional trying to make his way in the game.
Following its release, Dyer took time out of his busy schedule to talk to our Sports Correspondent Donovan Blake.
