Leicester City have moved to bolster their wide options with the deadline day signing of Nathan Dyer from Swansea City on a season-long loan. 

Subject to Premier League, Football Association and international clearance, the 27-year-old winger becomes City’s seventh signing of the summer transfer window.

Dyer has spent the last six years in South Wales, during which time he helped Swansea win promotion from the Sky Bet Championship, the Capital One Cup and become an established force in the Barclays Premier League. 

With pace, creativity and versatility, Dyer has proven himself to be a considerable attacking threat down either flank in the top flight for Swansea in recent seasons, and will be keen to continue that trend with the Foxes.
