This impish Republic of Ireland international continued to defy attempts to buttonhole him as a winger or as an attacking midfielder, to operate successfully in a role just behind the front two.

Position: Left wing/Attacking midfielder
Age: 28
Born: Dublin (20 May, 1982)
Height: 5ft, 7in.
Weight: 10st, 3lbs.
Date signed: 26 June, 2008
Signed from: Blackpool, 250k plus Matthew Gilks
Contract: June 2014
City debut: v Coventry A (9 August, 2008)
Former clubs: Livingston, Blackpool.
International honours: Ireland (1 cap)

Season 2009/10 apps: 42 Goals: 14
Norwich City appes: 77 Goals: 16

Blackpool (06-08): 88 starts, plus 11 as sub, 16 goals.
Livingston (06-07): 15 starts, plus 4 as sub, 0 goals.
Total: 103 starts, plus 15 as sub, 16 goals.

His ability on the ball and to pick a pass created a hatful of goals for his colleagues and for himself as he reached 14 for the season.

Once in possession he can twist and turn away from defenders and he became the player opposition defences singled out to stop playing.

Wes narrowly lost out in the Football League's League One Player of the Year poll.
