Jack Rodwell

BornMarch 11, 1991

Jack Christian Rodwell is an English footballer who plays for Manchester City and the England national team. Although he is primarily deployed as a defensive midfielder, he is also known to have the potential to be a top center back. Rodwell has represented his country at all levels from Under-16 to the senior team. He joined the Everton's youth system at the age of seven, making his Under-18s debut at 14 and his debut for Everton's reserve team at the age of 15. Rodwell then broke a record on his senior debut becoming the youngest player to represent Everton in Europe. He signed his first professional contract with Everton on 17 March 2010, after spending six years in the reserve team. Rodwell scored his first senior goal for Everton in the FA Cup against Aston Villa in February 2009. He scored his first Premier League goal in Everton's 3–1 win against Manchester United. In August 2012, Rodwell signed a five-year contract with Manchester City for an undisclosed fee, believed to be around £12 million. He made his debut on 19 August 2012, in a 3-2 win at home to Southampton. In December 2006, Rodwell captained the England Under-16 side to Victory Shield glory, following a 2–1 victory over Scotland. On 25 March 2008, Rodwell scored England U17's only goal as they drew 1–1 with France in a 2008 UEFA European U17 Football Championship qualifier.
