Nathan Dyer on the key reason behind his move to Leicester City

Leicester City have signed Nathan Dyer on loan from Swansea City.

Nathan Dyer has told Leicester City's official website that the club's attacking ethos was what attracted him to the King Power Stadium this summer.

Dyer has joined Leicester on a season-long loan from Swansea City, and has already been impressed by the quality in the Foxes' ranks.

The 27-year-old winger believes that Leicester's desire to get forward suits him well, and says that their fearless style was a major contributing factor behind his decision to trade South Wales for the East Midlands. 

“We’ve got a great aggressive front line and that’s the way to go forward," Dyer said. "I love to see that and I love to watch that. The gaffer likes to play with wingers and to keep attacking. That’s what attracted me to the club."

Dyer's start at Leicester has been impeded, after he picked up an injury problem while scoring on his debut. 

The rapid winger headed the winner against Aston Villa on his first appearance, but in scoring he got clattered by Brad Guzan and has been out of action ever since.

However, Dyer is fit again now and will be hoping to play a part in the Foxes match at the weekend.

Leicester take on Southampton on Saturday knowing that a win could elevate them back into the top-four places in the Premier League table.
