He began playing for the English junior teams the U-16, The U-17, The U- 18 and the U-21 teams respectively. In 2002 the central midfielder eventually moved to Arsenal under coach Arsene Wenger but he didn't make an appearance. From the Emirates he went to Birmingham city and then Bolten wanderers where he had to retire early.
