Stats

Southport-born midfielder Rodwell established himself as a first-team squad regular at Everton as a teenager.

He made his full Blues debut as a substitute against AZ Alkmaar at the age of just 16 years and 284 days to become the youngest ever Toffees player to appear in Europe, a record subsequently beaten by Jake Bidwell.

Rodwell was just 15 when he made his first reserve appearance, replacing David Weir in a game against Sheffield United in October 2006. A year earlier, at the age of 14, Jack had made his Everton Under-18s bow.

Rodwell's Premier League debut came in March 2008, when he appeared as a substitute at Sunderland.

He then featured prominently during the summer of 2008 and made his first professional start in the Premier League curtain-raiser against Blackburn Rovers in August of that year, playing the full 90 minutes.

The teenager remained in and around the first team from that point on and, in February 2009, notched his first senior goal in a 3-1 FA Cup win over Aston Villa.

He continued to earn rave reviews for his composed performances before a series of injuries struck.

A return to fitness at the start of the 2011/12 season was rewarded with a first England senior squad call-up however, and an international debut arrived as the Three Lions earned a 1-0 win against world champions Spain.

In August 2012, then-Premier League champions Manchester City signed Rodwell on a five-year contract, paying an undisclosed fee for his services.

However, after an injury-ravaged two years at the Etihad Stadium, he made a £10million switch to Sunderland, signing a five-year deal.
