I'm no gamble says Boro newcomer

Latest signing Kieron Dyer has described his recent move to the Riverside as representing no significant risk to Middlesbrough.

Former England international Dyer, 34, joined the Teessiders on a pay-as-you-play deal last week following a succession of injury problems over recent years.

"People have said it was a gamble, but it's not because if I don't play it won't cost them," Dyer told BBC Tees. "If I do play well and stay fit I can help them achieve what they want to.

"When I left QPR, I had a few offers but as soon as I spoke to Tony Mowbray and Jonathan Woodgate I thought this was the club for me," he added. "I knew about them, they play attractive football the way I want to and they're in a great position to kick on and get into the Premier League."

Dyer made his debut for Boro in their 4-0 defeat at his hometown club Ipswich Town at the weekend.
