Club Career

Club(s) Started his career as a Liverpool FC academy goalkeeper, but left when he was fifteen years old. He changed his position to outfield and joined Bury FC's Youth & Centre of Excellence. He signed professionally on 8 March 2003, and made ninety league appearances, scoring eighteen goals. He signed for Preston North End FC on 11 January 2005 for £100,000.  Following his England call-up, Nugent's value increased and after 93 league appearances and 35 goals, he signed for Portsmouth FC in a £6 million deal on 11 July 2007, despite an offer by Sunderland AFC also. Within weeks however, a proposed moved to Derby County FC fell through, as did a loan move to Ipswich Town FC in March 2008.  However, a loan deal to Burnley FC did happen on 1 September 2009. And another from 1 February 2010. Nugent made thirty league appearances, scoring six times, before he returned to Pompey. He spent the 2010-11 season at the south-coast club after failing to earn a permanent contract at Burnley or attract any other clubs, Nugent completed 75 league appearances, scoring sixteen goals. As a free agant, he signed for Leicester City FC on 5 July 2011. He has played 84 league matches, scoring 29 goals up until 2012-13, recapturing his earlier form.
