Relegation-threatened Queens Park Rangers have decided to release midfielder Kieron Dyer after playing just eight games.

The former England international was repeatedly injured whilst at Loftus Road, which limited his appearances for the club.

Dyer's last act as a QPR player was to score a last-minute equaliser against West Brom in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Manager Harry Redknapp told the club's website: "I'd like to thank Kieron for his services to QPR.

"If he can stay clear of injuries I'm sure there's clubs out there that will offer him the chance to play football.

"He wasn't in my plans and I think he's got something to offer someone, so we wish him all the best."
