Place of birthIpswich
NationalityEnglish
Weight60 kg

PositionMidfielder

A supremely talented midfielder, Kieron joined Newcastle from Ipswich Town and sympathetically guided by former Portman Road boss Sir Bobby Robson.

He was handed his England debut by Kevin Keegan.

Although he missed out on Kevin Keegan's Euro 2000 squad, having made his debut in the qualifier against Luxembourg, it was thought he could be given his chance to show his true worth in the 2002 World Cup finals.

A versatile and dynamic playmaker, Kieron has the pace and skill to raise the tempo of any game.

Kieron's contract at Newcastle United was extended to June 2009 in July 2005.

He joined West Ham United in August 2007 with a four-year contract.

Kieron joined Queens Park Rangers in July 2011 with a one-year contract that was extended to June 2013 in May 2012 before it was cancelled in January 2013.
