Kieran Richardson arrived in B6 in the summer of 2014 - reuniting with former manager Roy Keane in the process.

The left-winger, who is also comfortable in a more defensive or central role, played under Paul Lambert's assistant during a spell at Sunderland.

Born in London, 'Mr Versatile' Richardson was a trainee at West Ham United but moved north to Manchester in 2001.

He spent the majority of his youth career in the Old Trafford academy but failed to nail down a regular spot in Sir Alex Ferguson's first-team.

Interestingly, his biggest impact to date came 'up the road' in his 12 games at the Hawthorns.

When managing West Bromwich Albion, Bryan Robson signed Richardson on loan and his excellent performances and three goals helped West Bromwich Albion survive relegation on the final day of the season.

His first permanent transfer was to Keane's Sunderland and a move to Fulham followed in 2012.

Away from football, Richardson is a keen artist and once produced a Manchester skyline piece which Sir Alex Ferguson proudly placed on his office wall.

Now at the age of 29, Richardson will be looking for success in the coming years.
