“Born in Middlesbrough, Matt’s family relocated to Surrey whilst he was very young. He played for local youth team Meadow Sports before being picked up by Millwall, and later on Gillingham, where he broke into the first team in 2003 aged 17.

“Matt made more than 100 appearances for The Gills before earning a move to Wolves in 2007. He quickly became a fan-favourite at Molineux and helped the club to Premier League promotion in 2009, winning the Championship.

“England came calling in 2011 as Matt received a call up from Fabio Capello. He featured in England’s 1-1 draw with Ghana at Wembley.

“After 5 years and 175 appearances at Wolves, Matt moved to West Ham United in the summer of 2012 for a then club-record fee. 90 appearances later, the winger moved to Norwich City in 2015.

“After a short spell at Walsall last season, Matt will join the Cards to boost the push for a play-off place.”
