Born in Hexham, Northumberland, England, he was deemed too small to play as a goalkeeper in his early years but entered a significant growth spurt at 15 years of age and signed with Newcastle United's academy in 2005. In his six years with Newcastle United he never made an appearance for the club, instead serving his time on loan at various clubs in the lower divisions of English football. His first proper run of games in a competitive environment came during his loan spell at EFL One club Norwich City in the 2009/10 season as the Englishman kept 21 clean sheets in 38 league appearances to help The Canneries finish as champions and win promotion to the EFL Championship, he was voted as Norwich City Player's Player of the Season and Norwich City Supporters' Player of the Season for his outstanding contributions. The goalkeeper would be loaned out to Scottish giants Celtic FC for the following couple of seasons with the move to Celtic Park made permanent ahead of the 2012/13 Scottish Premiership season. In his four seasons with The Hoops he made a total of 197 appearances and kept 101 clean sheets on route to three Scottish Premier League titles (2011/12, 2012/13 and 2013/14) and two Scottish Cups (2010/11 and 2012/13), he won the Scottish Premiership Golden Glove in all four seasons and was voted as Celtic Players' Player of the Season in the 2012/13 and 2013/14 season, furthermore he claimed the record for most consecutive league clean sheets for Celtic with 13. On August 2014 the goalkeeper moved to English club Southampton for a fee of £10 million, making his debut in the opening match of the 2014/15 Premier League season in a 2-1 defeat to Liverpool. Since his debut the Englishman has made 125 appearances for The Saints and kept 45 clean sheets, towards the end of the 2017/18 season he was dropped due to poor form and replaced by Alex McCarthy, the arrival of Angus Gunn from Manchester City in the 2019/19 season saw him pushed further down the pecking order.
