Born in Gortnahoe, County Tipperary, Ireland he spent his youth career at various Irish clubs before moving to England to play for EFL Championship club Reading. In his debut season for The Royals he scored three goals in 10 substitute appearances as the club won promotion to the Premier League, the following couple of seasons would see the striker cut his teeth in the Premier League, scoring 5 goals in 50 appearances before Reading were relegated back to the EFL Championship after finishing 18th in the table. Back in the EFL Championship the forward began to really hit his stride becoming an indispensable component of the first-team, the 2010/11 season would be his finest to date with 21 goals in 44 EFL Championship appearances for which he was awarded Reading Player of the Season. On August 2011 after 6 years with Reading the Irishman signed for Premier League club West Bromwich Albion on a three-year deal, it took him little time to hit the ground running as he scored on his debut for West Brom against Manchester United. In his two-and-a-half season at The Hawthorns, he made 81 Premier League appearances and scored 19 goals. He transferred to Hull City on January 2014 but left for Southampton 6 months later after 15 appearances and 4 goals. The Irishman made his debut for The Saints as a substitute in a 2-1 defeat against Liverpool, two months later he scored his first goal for Southampton in a 3-2 victory over Stoke City in a League Cup fixture. Over the course of five seasons (2014-2019) the striker made 181 appearances across all competitions for The Saints, scoring 32 and assisting 22 goals. During the 2018/19 season the Irishman set a couple of milestones as he became only the fourth Irishman to score 50 Premier League goals, and his goal against Watford was determined as the fastest ever goal scored in the Premier League clocking in at 7.69 seconds after kickoff.
