Jermaine Beckford signed for Everton in May 2010.

Beckford was released by Leeds United and Everton beat a host of Clubs to secure the signature of the highly-rated frontman.

He joined the Toffees having been a key figure in Leeds' promotion from League One, scoring 31 goals for the Elland Road outfit in the 2009/10 campaign - the most memorable of which was probably an FA Cup winner against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Indeed, his goalscoring pedigree can't be questioned; he scored 34 goals in the 2008/09 season and 20 in 2007/08.

He joined Leeds in March 2006 for £45,000 from non-leaguers Wealdstone, where he had boasted a similarly impressive scoring record.

It took him a while to force his way into the Yorshire's side's first team, and he enjoyed loan spealls at Carlisle and Scunthorpe before cementing a regular starting place.

Beckford, who had been part of Chelsea's academy as a youngster, has accrued a raft of awards as a result of his consistently high goalscoring over the last few seasons.

In 2007/08 and 2009/10 he was the League One player of the year, while in 2008/09 he won the League One golden boot and was the PFA League One fans' player of the year. He also won Leeds' player of the year awards in 2008 and 2009.

Beckford scored his first Everton goal in the Toffees' Carling Cup Second Round against Huddersfield Town, converting from the penalty spot as part of a 5-1 win.

By the end of the campaign he had racked up 10 goals, completing that haul with a memorable effort against Chelsea when he ran from his own box before lifting the ball over Petr Cech.

He subsequently joined Leicester in August 2011.
