Stylish right-back who joined Norwich on loan in November 2009 before making the move permanent in January 2010.

Position: Right-back

Age: 27

Born: Brighton (4 January, 1986)

Height: 6ft.

Weight: 11st, 8lbs.

Signed from: Peterborough, undisclosed fee

Contract: June 2016

City debut: v Southend A (1 December, 2009)

As captain of Peterboroughs promotion-winning side of 2008-09 it came as something of a surprise when he was allowed to move to Norfolk to team up with his former boss at Wycombe, Paul Lambert.

His desire to push forward gave City an additional weapon, but he also looked rock solid in defence displaying positional awareness and excellent passing skills out of defence.
