Ex-Newcastle and England footballer Kieron Dyer has been taken into hospital to ‘undertake tests’. 

The 42-year-old recently sustained a collapsed lung during an appearance on Celebrity SAS but it is not yet known if the two incident are linked. 

Ipswich’s official website released a short statement saying: ‘The Club can confirm that Town U23 manager Kieron Dyer is currently undertaking tests in hospital.

‘Everyone at Ipswich Town Football Club sends their best wishes to Kieron at this time.

‘We ask everyone to respect Kieron’s privacy, and we will be making no further comment on the matter.’    

Dyer featured on the latest grueling series of SAS Who Dares Wins on Channel 4. During the programme he sustained a collapsed lung. 

It is believed the former footballer took two months to recover from his time on the show due to his injuries.

Speaking after his guest appearance, Dyer said: ‘There were quite a few things to overcome.

‘I’d had hypothermia, and I had a fractured rib, a collapsed lung, and one of my testicles was as big as an apple. 

‘When I had my first hospital visit my lung wasn’t picked up. I was about to fly but I didn’t feel quite right and went to hospital again and they spotted it.

‘It was lucky I didn’t get on the plane.’ 

The current Ipswich U23 boss said that he had to use painkillers to cope with his injuries. He said: ‘I had to mask the pain and pump myself full of paracetamol.’ 

During the show, Dyer as revealed the emotional toll of being sexually abused when he was just ’11 or 12′ years old.  

Speaking to Ant Middleton and Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham, the former England footballer said that the abuse he sustained by his uncle ‘turned him into a monster’. 

Kieron – whose cracked rib forced him out of the competition – said in full: ‘I didn’t want to go on about sob stories or accomplishments, I wanted you to judge me from a clean slate, and yeah, I was a victim of sexual abuse when I was a kid.  

‘I was 11 or 12 from a family member and this monster, well this f**king p**k turned me into a monster, and for the rest of my life the amount of people I’ve hurt because of these personality traits.

‘Like family, dad, mum, wife, you can go on and on. I always had the mindset of do you know what, ’cause I’m a victim, this is the way I am.

‘I have just learned today when I come out of here, I’m not a victim of sexual abuse no more, because every time I’m a victim, he wins. Every time I hurt my family and they’re victims, he wins. I’m not a victim no more.’ 

Dyer was also present during the Newcastle and Tottenham game that saw a supporter receive medical treatment in the stands.   

Discussing the importance of having equipment like defibrillators at football stadiums, the ex-Newcastle player said at the time: ‘When you do your coaching badges, it’s compulsory that you do your first-aid.

‘Just having that bit of knowledge can help save people’s lives.’
