Dyer joined Bolton Wanderers in September 2018 but last played a competitive game in March this year.

Manager Nigel Clough said: "He's been training with us for the last month and with us being a bit short squad-wise with injuries starting to bite, Lloyd is going to help out if we need him."

Dyer, who has also played for Leicester City, Watford and MK Dons during a 12-club career, is available for the third-round Carabao Cup tie against AFC Bournemouth on Wednesday.

"We know him, he's experienced, he knows us as a club and he's very keen to keep on playing," Clough added.
