Signed from Swindon Town for £1.25m in January 1997, Kevin initially struggled in a Manchester City team fighting relegation to Division 2.

A versatile player able to play left wing back but more effective on the left side of midfield and an expert penalty taker, contributing five goals from the spot in 1999-2000.

A consistent performer for the Blues in 2000-01, he became an important part of the Northern Ireland team forming a good partnership with ex-teammate Steve Lomas.

Kevin returned to West Ham United in August 2003 on a three-year contract.

He moved on to Ipswich Town in July 2004 in a two-year deal but was made available for transfer in January 2006.

Kevin joined Doncaster Rovers in May 2006 with a two-year contract that was cancelled in January 2008.

He then joined Scunthorpe United with a contract to the end of the season.
