Keith Andrews's previous experience of senior football amounted to around five minutes before the start of the 2000-01 campaign but he made such tremendous progress that he was regarded as a regular in the Wolverhampton Wanderers first team by the summer.

His fortunes began to change after joining Oxford United on loan in November where he scored a fine goal on his debut.

On his return, caretaker-manager John Ward gave him a surprise chance for the Wanderers just before Christmas and he showed great promise in a short spell in the line-up.

Absent for a run of three games, he came back with an outstanding performance against West Bromwich Albion, tackling well and spraying the ball around confidently.

A young midfield battler who seems to have all the attributes needed for his position.

Andrews joined Hull City in July 2005 with a two-year contract.

He joined Milton Keynes Dons in August 2006 with a three-year contract.

Andrews joined Blackburn Rovers in August 2008 with a three-year contract that was extended to June 2013 in July 2009.

He joined West Bromwich Albion in January 2012 with a contract to June 2012.

Andrews joined Bolton Wanderers in July 2012 with a two-year contract.

He was made available for transfer by Wanderers in July 2014.
