Reports that Kieron Dyer has fallen out with West Ham United manager Avram Grant have been played down by the player's representatives.
The former England international, whose career has been plagued by a succession of serious injuries, was not included in the Hammers' squad for the Premier League clash with Stoke City.
A statement from Graham Shear of BLP Solicitors read: "Kieron Dyer read with concern and bemusement reports on Saturday morning in several newspapers that he supposedly had a "row" or "bust-u" with West Ham manager Avram Grant.
"Kieron confirmed that this is untrue and that there has been no dispute of any nature with Avram Grant about Kieron's selection to play against Stoke today or about any other topic.
"Kieron is uncertain why he was not selected for the squad and, while he does have a thigh injury, if he had been selected, he would have willingly joined the squad on the trip to Stoke today."
