Francis Jeffers signed for Everton as a schoolboy, making his debut as a 16-year-old in a 2-0 defeat away to Manchester United in 1997.

He quickly proved himself as a goalscorer with a predatory knack of netting inside the box, but made a big-money move to Arsenal in the summer of 2001.

Jeffers made 51 appearances for the Blues, scoring 22 times before his £8 million move to the capital.

Yet, his time with the Gunners was plagued by injury and the Liverpool-born forward returned to Goodison Park on loan in 2003/04, featuring 18 times.

He departed Arsenal at the end of that campaign, with subsequent spells at Charlton Athletic, Rangers, Blackburn Rovers, Ipswich Town and Sheffield Wednesday.

In 2010, he left the continent to join Australian side Newcastle Jets for the first of two spells either side of a stint at Motherwell before moves to Maltese outfit Floriana and Accrington Stanley.

Jeffers netted 13 times for England Under-21s in his youth and also marked his only senior cap with a goal against Australia in 2003.
