Free agent winger Lloyd Dyer has been training with League One side Burton Albion recently.

The 37-year-old was released by Bolton Wanderers at the end of last season and has returned to the Brewers for training, as per a report by Derbyshire Live.

Dyer, who is a vastly experienced player having racked up 550 appearances so far in his career, played for Nigel Clough’s side for two seasons from 2016 to 2018 in the Championship and scored a combined 15 goals in all competitions.

Burton could look at handing him a contract to add more experience into their ranks as well as more options out wide.

Dyer started out as a youngster at Aston Villa before switching to West Brom. He went onto break into the Baggies first team after loan spells away at Coventry City and QPR.

He had a brief stint at Millwall before moving to MK Dons in 2006. The pacey wide man impressed for the Dons in League Two and earned himself a move to Leicester City in 2008.

Dyer spent six years with the Foxes, helping them earn promotion from League One and the Championship.

Spells at Watford, Birmingham City, Burnley, Burton and Bolton have followed for him in his lengthy career and it appears he is showing no signs of hanging up his boots just yet.

Dyer knows Burton inside out and was a huge player for them two years ago. Could they bring him back for one last hurrah now?
