Dyer Trouble for Former Claret

Southampton FC have confirmed that their striker Bradley Wright-Phillips and winger Nathan Dyer were detained by the Police on Tuesday over allegations of theft at a Hampshire nightclub.

The arrests were made after investigations of the thefts at Bar Bluu in Southsea on 28 February. The players had visited the nightclub for a VIP night involving R&B singing star Kano. It is understood the two players and their mates were caught on CCTV entering an open bar staff room. It is alleged that a number of items were stolen from some handbags after bar staff later reported that mobile phones, cash, cigarettes and other personal effects had gone missing.

Hampshire Police confirmed two men had been bailed until 17 June at Portsmouth Central police station.

A spokesman for Southampton said: 'It's a matter of police investigation and we cannot comment.'

Both players had already been punished by the club picking up a one-match ban and fined two week's wages for late night socialising. Dyer though has been suffering from an injury and has not been match fit since December.His contract with the Saints is also up in the close season.

Nathan Dyer played for the Clarets whilst on loan from Southampton in 2005. The little bubbley winger scored twice in five appearances whilst at Burnley and was a popular favourite with the Clarets fans during his short stay.

Oh heck, all rather suspicious bearing in mind that according to the local Southampton paper(Southampton Daily Echo),Wright-Phillips earns around 8,000 a week, and Dyer in the region of 5,000.
