Mowbray: Dyer still 'a top player'

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray says he's looking forward to seeing winger Kieron Dyer in action.

The former Newcastle United player joined Boro on a four-month contract on Thursday after being released by Queens Park Rangers in early January. He's been given the number 12 shirt.

The 34-year-old has been included in Middesbrough's squad for the match against his boyhood club Ipswich Town on Saturday. Mowbray said Dyer could be an invaluable signing. He said: "I've known Kieron a long, long time. I probably played in his debut at Ipswich when he was 17.

"Even at such a young age he was a fabulous footballer with understanding of the game. He's obviously had injury problems for a lot of years. People keep throwing statistics at me of how many games he's played in how long.

"Hopefully he plays, and we get the benefits of a top player enjoying his football."

Mowbray made Graham enquiry

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray says the club did enquire about Danny Graham before the striker joined Sunderland.

It's understood Boro managed to agree a fee with Swansea City for the 27-year-old. However, the player has instead completed a £5 million move to the Stadium of Light.

Speaking on transfer deadline day, Mowbray said: "He is a player we did enquire about because of the personal reasons of wanting to come back to a certain area of the country, and we obviously fit that criteria."
