Highly regarded central defender who joined Norwich City from Millwall in January 2010 and, whilst injury restricted his impact at Carrow Road in the club's promotion-winning campaign, he displayed much promise for the seasons ahead in his limited game time.

Height: 6ft, 2in.

Weight: 11st, 4lbs.

Very strong in the air, he also has excellent positional sense and is always prepared to play his way out of defence, thus combining the ruggedness required of any defender with the ability to contribute more than just defensive qualities to his team.
