Statement below

The Club can confirm Town U23 manager Kieron Dyer has been diagnosed with primary sclerosing cholangitis.

Kieron has been managing problems with his liver for the past couple of years, and now requires a transplant.

Kieron has told the Club: “Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with a condition of the liver a couple of years ago, that would lead to me one day needing a transplant.

“Over the next week, test results will confirm when I need to go through this procedure.

“I see myself as a very positive person that will overcome this minor setback.

“I’m very grateful to the Club, the supporters and the general public for their messages of support over the past week.

"I would like to ask everyone now to respect my privacy, and my family’s privacy.”

The best wishes of everyone at Ipswich Town Football Club remain with Kieron and his family.

We reiterate our request that everyone respects Kieron’s wishes in privacy for him and his family.
