Former Newcastle United winger Kieron Dyer has left Queens Park Rangers with immediate effect.
QPR boss Harry Redknapp decided that the 34-year-old was surplus to requirements at Loftus Road, and activated a release clause in his contract. Redknapp told the club's official website: "He wasn't in my plans and I think he's got something to offer someone, so we wish him all the best."
Dyer joined the Magpies from Ipswich for £6m in 1999, and made more than 190 appearances for the club in eight seasons at St James' Park. He then moved to West Ham in 2007, before returning to Portman Road on loan in March 2011. He signed for QPR in July 2011 under then manager Neil Warnock.
