Kieron Dyer looks set for yet another lengthy spell on the sidelines after QPR manager Neil Warnock confirmed the midfielder has sustained another long-term injury.

Dyer, who signed on a free transfer this summer, has played six minutes of competitive football for Rangers thanks to an ankle injury which he suffered on his debut against Bolton. The 32-year-old was thought to be making good progress on what was originally diagnosed as a short-term problem, but he has suffered a relapse as well as a new foot injury.

"It's not looking good for Kieron and it looks as if he will need a lengthy rehab," Warnock told the Fulham Chronicle.

"There seems to be new ligament problem at the front of his foot, and he has been in a lot of pain.

"I feel for the lad, especially after the training and effort he's made to get back."

Owing to Dyer's history with injuries, signing the player was always going to be a gamble, but Warnock is adamant that he will not give up hope on the former England midfielder, who signed a one-year deal at Loftus Road this summer after leaving West Ham this summer.

Warnock added: "There has been talk we should maybe think of finding Kieron another club at Christmas, bearing in mind we have a number of new players.

"But I would like to keep him until the end of the season - he deserves that at least."
