Signed for Sheffield Wednesday for £500,000 from Peterborough United in April 1997 along with winger Mark McKeever in April 1997. But since then he has endured a constant injury nightmare.
He would have almost certainly have appeared in Wednesday colours if he had stayed fit.
He returned to his old club Posh in September 2000 on loan in a bid to help him regain fitness following 18 months on the treatment table. But he broke down in his first appearance for the reserves.
He was forced to retire from the game in February 2001 at the age 20 due to his knee injuries.
