The manager of Middlesbrough FC, Tony Mowbray, has said that Kieron Dyer’s contract will not be extended by the club next season.
Dyer had signed for Middlesbrough only at the start of this year for six months. He has so far featured for them in 9 matches and has scored a couple of goals.
The Middlesbrough management doesn’t seem to be impressed with what Dyer has done so far for them in the second half of the season. So, they will release the English midfielder at the end of this season.
When asked about the extension of Dyer’s contract, Mowbray said, “No, we are not looking to extend his contract. Our aim is to build a young squad and we will be signing some of the younger guys during the transfer window.”
“It has been brilliant to work with Kieron. He has been absolutely fantastic not only during matches, but, off the ground as well. He has entertained all of us during his tenure here. He is a very popular character in the camp and he will be really missed.”
Mowbray also made it clear that Josh McEachran and Sammy Ameobi who are currently playing for Middlesbrough on loan will go back to their respective parent clubs at the end of this season.
McEachran and Ameobi are the contracted players of Chelsea and Newcastle United respectively.
McEachran has been a regular member of Middlesbrough starting XI this season. He has so far played 38 matches for the club.
When asked whether these two players would stay at Middlesbrough or return to their parent clubs, Mowbray said, “There is a good possibility that they will be going back. I am not announcing that officially. I will have to talk to the managers of those two clubs before making any official announcement. But, as things stand now, I think they will return.”
