Eyebrows were raised when Arsenal signed Jermaine Pennant from Notts County for £ 2 million, which was the record transfer fee for a trainee at that time. He was the youngest player to feature for the Gunners when he was given his debut against Middlesborough in the League Cup, a record surpassed by Cesc Fabregas and Jack Wilshere in the recent times.

With just 5 starts in 7 years, the winger scored just three goals that have come in a hat-trick against Southampton on his full league debut in 2003. His off-field issues, coupled with poor displays eventually lead to loan spells with Watford, Leeds United and Birmingham before signing on a permanent basis for £ 3 million.

Pennant had an unsuccessful spell at Anfield.
