PositionMidfielder

A quick, skilful wide midfielder, Jonathan Greening could not quite break through into the first-team squad at Manchester United as a regular.

Having impressed in United's early-season defeat of Bradford City in the Premiership, he also appeared twice in Worthington Cup matches, deputised for Ryan Giggs in the 3-1 Champions' League reverse against PSV Eindhoven and featured in the Premiership against Aston Villa and Leicester City.

Despite becoming a regular member of the England Under-21 side, the lack of first-team opportunities became too much of a burden for him, and he asked for a transfer again in March.

Jonathan joined West Bromwich Albion in July 2004 with a contract to June 2007.

His Baggies contract was extended to June 2010 in August 2007.

After a loan spell, Jonathan joined Fulham in July 2010 with a two-year contract.

He joined Nottingham Forest in July 2011 with a three-year contract.

Already on the club's coaching staff, Jonathan re-registered as a player with York City in November 2015 on non-contract terms.
