He played for more clubs than that. Luton, West Ham, West Brom, and even 4 appearances for your own beloved Norwich!

Good luck to him.

Yes I know, I listed the big ones, teams he was known for. Norwich was just a loan and an unsuccessful one at that.

Man that sucks. I always used to play FIFA with Celtic and he was unstoppable alongside a fast striker, the defense would just get pulled and he would be wide open! Best of luck to him.
