I would like to thank all my team-mates and coaches I’ve learnt from along the way, creating friendships and bonds that will last forever.

Newcastle United, Blackpool, Bradford City, Leeds United, Sunderland, Burnley, Wigan Athletic, Birmingham City and Toronto, have been magnificent clubs.

It was an honour to wear your shirt and I hope the fans appreciated the pride I felt in putting on their jersey’s.”
