Definitely one of England's hottest prospects, Kieron Dyer poses a great threat to opposition defenses.

Dyer joined Newcastle from his hometown club Ipswich Town in July 1999 for 6m. The skillful midfielder dazzled not only former manager Ruud Gullit with his fantastic pace, and accurate pace, but also football personalities from around Europe. This probably accounts for the soar in his value, to 20m!
