Speculation has claimed that Tottenham are lining up a move for the former Ipswich Town ace.
Allardyce has refuted the rumours and insists Dyer has a big part to play in his plans on Tyneside after holding talks with the player.
"Anyone saying that I want Kieron to leave is talking utter rubbish," Allardyce told The People.
"He is one of the successes of last year in that he appears to have overcome his major injury problems.
"I have spoken to Kieron. He is such a versatile player that he can get used in a number of positions and that can be difficult for him sometimes.
"But I will take the brunt of it if he has to be moved around. We want to grow together."
