Kevin Kilbane played in all of Ireland's qualifying games for the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea.

He had been the Republic's regular supply of crosses from the left flank since making his international bow.

An orthodox wingman, in joining West Bromwich Albion from Preston North End in 1997, the £1million fee broke the Baggies' club record.

The previous holder was former England winger Peter Barnes.

Kevin moved onto Sunderland for £2.5million where he replaced Allan Johnston as Niall Quinn's provider of quality balls at the Stadium of Light.

As well as his familiar role, Kevin has also been known to play at wing-back and on the right wing.

He joined Everton in September 2003 in a two-year deal.

Kevin joined Wigan Athletic in August 2006 with a three-year contract.

He joined Hull City in January 2009 with a contract to June 2011.

Kevin joined Coventry City in July 2012 with a one-year contract that was cancelled in December 2012.
