West Ham United have signed England midfielder Kieron Dyer from Newcastle United, both English Premier League clubs confirmed on Wednesday.

The transfer appeared to have stalled after Newcastle reportedly upped their price from £6 million (11.9 million dollars, 8.9 million euros) to £8 million.

"Newcastle United and West Ham have agreed terms and the transfer of Kieron Dyer to West Ham has now been concluded," the Hammers said on their website.
