Playing Career


Club(s)
Appeared for Leeds City Boys FC before being signed on schoolboy terms by Oldham Athletic FC in 2000, and signed for Manchester City FC a year later, coming through the youth levels. Several attempts from Tottenham Hotspur FC to sign him throughout his time proved futile. After settling into the first team, he was loaned out to AFB Fiorentina on 1 September 2014 for a season long-loan, costing £3.5 million, where he had made ten Serie A appearances. Returned to City at the end of his contract and joined Aston Villa FC on a free transfer on 17 June 2015. Villa were relegated in his first season, and Richards suffered a serious knee injury in his second. He was released by Villa at the end of his contract, 30 June 2019, having not making a single appearance since 2017-18.Richards announced his retirement from playing on 26 July 2019, at the age of just 31.
