Nathan Dyer became Leicester City’s seventh signing of the summer, getting to the East Midlands just in the nick of time.

The winger was flown in from Swansea on the owner’s helicopter, landing at the club’s training ground to sign a season-long loan with the Foxes.

Dyer made more than 200 appearances with Swansea City and helped the club gain promotion to the Premier League, but has fallen down the pecking order with the likes of Jefferson Montero and Andre Ayew preferred by manager Garry Monk.

Now Dyer will look to find some minutes alongside Riyad Mahrez for Leicester, who have been one of the surprise stories of the season, albeit just four games in.

Leicester City currently sits third on the table with two wins and two draws through four matches, a shocking start considering many had the Foxes penned for relegation before the season started.
