On loan and surreal return as life at Leicester became far from expected and special for Swansea legend

Nathan Dyer joined Leicester on loan from Swansea, during that special 2015/16 season, being involved and part of the 5000/1 experience. He left Leicester with great memories, returning to Swansea as a Premier League winner, and of course that happening will stay with him for life.

He returned to Swansea, and continued his play at The Liberty, playing a total of 281 league appearances, scoring 28 goals. At Leicester his tally came to 12 as well as that final goal in the 3-2 win vs. Aston Villa.

He started his career with Southampton and stayed there from 2005 ro 2009, making his move to Swansea, first on loan, and then permanent in the summer for a fee of £400.000.

He played under Brendan Rodgers at Swansea and became a favourite as the Welsh club found their way into the Premier League, and contributed from his attacking position with a good a relation to fans.

He became an important squad player at his time at Leicester and always humble and up to standard as Claudio Ranieri called on him when needed, being part of this very special squad of players and not probably one that are as much remembered as the players that went on to international glory.

It was a fantastic season as all that took part probably have those grand memories, even if they were not as much involved as that special group being selected almost in every game played.

Leicester will be up against Swansea for their next Championship fixture, taking place on the 21st of October. This will be the first match between the two since they met in Premier League back in 2018, a 1-1 draw at King Power, with Nathan Dyer taking part, playing from start, as the game did see Jamie Vardy scoring the opening goal after 17 minutes.
