Liam Ridgewell

The defender moved to Blues from local rivals Aston Villa in August 2007 in a £2m deal.

He signed a three year contract, with a two year option.

Ridgewell joined Villa as 15-year-old having previously spent six years as a youngster at West Ham United.

He made his first team debut for Villa in 2003 against Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup, before going on to make more than 90 appearances for the Clarets - and scoring six goals.

The 6 feet two inch tall player is an excellent header of the ball and has a powerful left footed shot.

Ridgewell suffered a broken leg in a Championship game against Plymouth in April 2009 - an injury which kept him out of action until September 2009.

Following his return from injury, Ridgwell, whose main position is as centre half stepped in as emergency left back and made the position his own for the remainder of the 2009/10 season.

Season 2010 - 11
