Pen Pic

Nathan Dyer is a small, but pacey winger who equalled the club record fee paid when he joined Swansea City from Southampton in June 2009 following successful loan spell at the Liberty Stadium.

Dyer started his career with the Southampton Youth Academy and he was a member of the Saints Youth team that reached the final of the FA Youth Cup in 2005, losing the game on aggregate to Ipswich Town.

He had loan spells with Burnley and Sheffield United before former manager Roberto Martinez brought him to the club in January 2009.

He was previously at fellow Championship club Sheffield United in the 08/09 season but he struggled to break into the first team squad. Swansea City caught his eye when he watched the Blades face the Swans at the Liberty Stadium. He was impressed with the Swans' performance which persuaded him to join us.

Dyer made his first full debut at the Liberty Stadium on January 17th 2009 in the 2-0 win against high-flyers Reading. He was worthy of the man of the match award that day, he teamed up brilliantly with right back Angel Rangel and his pace and skill caused problems for their defence throughout the game.

Dyer continued to impress the fans and it didn't take him long to score his first goal for the club, and it happened to be against Southampton's arch rivals, Portsmouth. He opened the scoring as we caused an FA Cup upset that day, beating the Premiership side 2-0 at Franton Park. He also scored another crucial goal in a derby match against Cardiff City at Ninian Park in April 2009.

With his club Southampton destined for relegation from the Championship, Dyer was keen to make his Swansea move permanent but the two clubs struggled to agree a fee. The Saints accused the Swans of lowering their offer for the winger. Eventually a 400,000 bid was agreed on and he completed his switch to the South Wales side.
