Leicester City summer signing Nathan Dyer disappointed with his start

Nathan Dyer joined Leicester City from Swansea City, but has been disappointed with his injury problems.

Nathan Dyer has admitted to Leicester City's official website that he has been left disappointed with the way his time at the King Power Stadium has gone so far. 

Dyer joined Leicester on loan from Swansea City over the summer, but he has been left frustrated as he has had to watch on from the sidelines, after picking up an injury in his first appearance.

The winger scored the winner on debut against Aston Villa, but in scoring the goal he damaged his knee and he has been on the treatment table ever since.

“I obviously took a knock in the first game that I played for Leicester, so we’re just managing that and I’m trying to get back into it now,” Dyer said. “I needed to get some fitness in order to get back involved with the first team.

“When I got the knock and got up, I only thought my head was hurting. Obviously it was a bit disappointing getting that in the first game because I wanted to kick on and join in with the boys.”

During Dyer's absence, Leicester have managed to piece together an impressive run of form, which has guided them to 15 points from their first seven matches.

The Foxes currently sit in fifth place in the Premier League table, and they have only lost one game - against Arsenal - in all competitions this season.

When Dyer does return, he will add further quality to an attacking unit which has already shown itself to pose a considerable threat.

Leicester have scored 17 goals in the league to date, and only Manchester City have managed to hit the back of the net more frequently.
