The England international rose through the youth ranks of south London minnows Tooting after which he spent time at Reading, Cheltenham, Southampton, Colchester and Sheffield Wednesday before Nottingham Forrest snapped him up for £1.5 million.

West Ham signed him from Forrest for £7 million last summer and he has five goals in 12 appearances for the east London based outfit this season.
