But it all started at Sheffield Wednesday, where he came through the academy before going on to make a handful of appearances.

A few years later he was back in England, first with QPR, before he moved on to Barnet.

In 2006 he joined Nottingham Forest where he scored 20 league goals over a two year period.

That was his final club in England, after which he joined Egyptian side Zamalek and then went to Greece with Apollon Limassol.
