Ian Harte

Date of birth31 August 1977
Place of birthDrogheda
NationalityIrish
Weight73 kg
Height1.78 m
PositionDefender/Left back

Harte's deadly threat from free-kicks continues to be a feature of his play.

As well as his unerring accuracy and power from positions anywhere near the area, he is also a reliable penalty taker.

Along with Roy Keane, he was the joint top scorer in the Republic's qualifying campaign for the 2002 World Cup finals.

The possessor of an outstanding left foot, the quality of his crossing has been a major supply for the Irish forwards when moving forward from his familiar left back berth.

A one-club man, he has gained a veritable wealth of experience in the Premiership and European club competition since signing professional forms for Leeds United in 1995, and has made over 200 appearances for the West Yorkshire club.

He is the nephew of his Leeds and Ireland full back partner, Garry Kelly.

Harte joined Levante in July 2004 with a four-year contract.

In August 2007, he joined Roy Keane's Sunderland with a one-year contract.

Harte joined Blackpool in December 2008 with a monthly contract.

He joined Carlisle United in March 2009 with a contract to the end of the season that was extended to June 2011 in May 2009 and to June 2012 in August 2010.

Harte joined Reading in August 2010 with a two-year contract that was extended to June 2013.

He joined AFC Bournemouth in July 2013 with a one-year contract that was extended to June 2015 in April 2014.
