Club Career

Club(s) Started his early football career with Westbrook Juniors FC, and despite being asked to trial for Everton FC, it never materialised. Instead, he had a trial with Leeds United AFC, whom he eventually signed professional forms with on 12 February 2003. Loaned to Swindon Town FC for a month on 4 September 2003, to gain first-team experience, he played six league matches, scoring twice. After 48 league matches and five goals with Leeds, Milner joined Newcastle United FC in July 2004 for £3.6 million. Another 94 league appearances followed, and six goals, only interupted by a season-long loan to Aston Villa FC in September 2005 (27 Premiership matches, a single goal). Milner returned to Villa Park for £12 million on 29 August 2008, and after eleven goals in 73 Premiership appearances, he joined Manchester City FC on 18th August 2010 in a deal worth £24 million+ player. He has since played 115 Premiership matches, scoring eight, up until 2013-14.
