Dyer's future at St James' Park has been the subject of intense speculation for the last few weeks.
West Ham have been strongly linked with the England international with Alan Curbishley refusing to rule out a move for the midfielder last weekend.
Allardyce met with Dyer to discuss his future and he has conceded the midfielder may leave Tyneside
"At the moment, there's a problem from a family point of view and we have to try to see whether we can resolve that, and if we cannot, then that may well result in Kieron looking to leave the club for that reason and that reason alone," said Allardyce.
"That's the discussion we have had. It's obviously disappointing for me, but it is one I understand.
"If somebody has got a problem they cannot resolve, then ultimately in the long run, it is better for the club and better for him if you can resolve that problem.
"If that's away from here, then so be it."
The news is sure to alert West Ham who are in the market for a new midfielder after losing Julien Faubert to injury.
