Born in Whiston, Merseyside, the Englishman joined the Liverpool's youth system at the age of seven in 1997, after a decade of progression he was promoted to Melwood in 2007, breaking into The Reds' title winning reserve team during the 2007-08 season. The defender earned his first call-up to the senior-side in November 2008 when he was an unused substitute in Liverpool's UEFA Champions League group-stage match against Marseille, and a month later on 9 December 2008, would make his debut coming on as a substitute for Jamie Carragher in the same competition against PSV Eindhoven. His first competitive start for Liverpool came in a man of the match performance against Lyon in the UEFA Champions League on 20 October 2009. Initially showing a wealth of promise, being awarded Liverpool Young Player of the Year for the 2010/11 season, things never quite materialized for the young centre-back at Anfield, bad luck with injuries meant he failed to hold down a regular place in the first-team, and only had 33 Premier League appearances to show for during his six years with The Reds. On 14 August 2013, after a decade-and-a-half with The Reds of Merseyside the defender crossed over to London to join Crystal Palace on a three-year deal, in just his debut season for The Eagles, the English centre-back kept 7 clean sheets in 31 Premier League appearances to help Palace finish tenth in the table. The rest of his time at Selhurst Park was marred by recurring injuries, limiting his appearances to 101 Premier League fixtures in five seasons at the club.
