Wednesday are weighing up a move for Leicester City winger Lloyd Dyer.

Owls boss Gary Megson is looking to bolster his squad with a number of new additions and the Foxes could be prepared to let their winger leave, given that boss Sven-Goran Eriksson has the funds to strengthen his own squad for a push for promotion in the npower Championship.

Dyer was still a key performer at the Walkers Stadium last season, making 39 appearances and scoring five goals along the way, but could fall down the pecking order under Eriksson next term.

The former MK Dons man has the experience of helping Leicester to promotion from League 1, something which is a big factor in Megson’s interest in the 28-year-old, and has also proven he can cut it in the Championship.

Wednesday chairman Milan Mandaric also knows Dyer well from his time as Foxes chairman and will be prepared to fund the transfer fee and wages for the Birmingham-born midfielder.

But Dyer could opt to stay at the Walkers and fight for his place, despite the potential flood of new arrivals at City this summer.

The Owls will try and use the guarantee of regular first team football next season to lure him to Hillsborough, and also now have the financial backing to offer Dyer a competitive wage.
