Having received a brief introduction to senior football in the 1999-2000 campaign, Dean Whitehead began to fulfil some of his promise in 2000-01.

He featured in several games early on but then took some time to win over new boss David Kemp before he was given another run in the side.

Dean is a busy midfield player who always wants to be in on the action and uses the ball very effectively.

He was rewarded for his efforts when he received the club's 'Young Player of the Year' award.

Dean joined Sunderland in July 2004 with a three-year contract that was extended to June 2008 in March 2005 then to June 2010 in November 2005.

His Black Cats deal was further extended to June 2011 in August 2006 then to June 2012 in August 2007.

Dean joined Stoke City in July 2009 with a four-year contract.

He joined Middlesbrough in July 2013 with a two-year contract.

Dean joined Huddersfield Town in July 2015 with a two-year contract that was extended to June 2018 in July 2017.
