Club Career

Club(s) Appeared for Leeds City Boys before being signed on schoolboy terms by Oldham Athletic FC in 2000, and signed for Manchester City FC a year later, coming through the youth levels. Sevaral attempts from Tottenham Hotspur FC to sign him throughout his time proved futile. After 179 Premier League appearances and six goals, he was loaned out to AFB Fiorentina on 1 September 2014 for a season long-loan, costing £3.5 million, where he had made ten Serie A appearances. Returned to England and joined Aston Villa FC on a free transfer on 17 June 2015. He scored once in 24 Premier League appearances, that saw his team relegated in his first season.
