A subsequent statement from the League One club on Sunday said he had been diagnosed with primary sclerosing cholangitis and now needed a transplant.
Dyer said, “Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with liver disease a few years ago which would eventually lead to me needing a transplant.
“Over the next week, the test results will confirm when I should go through this procedure.
“I see myself as a very positive person who will overcome this little setback. I am very grateful to the club, supporters and the general public for their messages of support over the past week.
“I would like to ask everyone now to respect my privacy and that of my family. “
Dyer, who won 33 senior caps in England, started his career with Ipswich before playing for Newcastle before moving to West Ham in 2007.
