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.
