John Ruddy sponsored by:
Goalkeeper John Ruddy joined City from Everton in a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee in July 2010.
The St Ives-born 'keeper came through the youth ranks at Cambridge United, where he made 43 appearances in all competitions after making his debut as an 18-year-old in the 1-0 away win over Leyton Orient in May 2004.
He joined Everton in the summer of 2005 for a fee of £250,000 and benefited from loan spells at Walsall, Rushden & Diamonds, Chester City, Stockport County, Wrexham and Bristol City, making a further 43 appearances.
His Everton debut came in February 2006, after 'keeper Iain Turner - deputising due to injuries to Richard Wright and Nigel Martyn - was sent off in the ninth minute for handball outside his area against Blackburn Rovers at Goodison Park. Ruddy replaced James McFadden and went on to keep a clean sheet as they beat Rovers 1-0.
The 6ft 4in stopper spent the end of the 2008-09 season on loan at Crewe Alexandra and made 19 appearances in League One. Last season Ruddy was on loan at Scottish Premier League side Motherwell, who finished fifth. He made 37 appearances there, including the goalless draws against both Celtic and Rangers.
Ruddy missed only one game for the Canaries in their 2010-11 promotion-winning season.
A sensational first season back in the Premier League with Norwich City in 2011-12 earned Ruddy second place in the Norwich City Player of the Season awards, and a call-up to Roy Hodgson's England squad for Euro 2012.
Unfortunately for the City 'keeper, a broken finger in training meant he had to withdraw from the squad before flying out to Poland.
Ruddy signed a new four-year contract with an option of a further year at Carrow Road in June 2012.
