Pen Pic

South Africa-born Andrew Surman began his career with Southampton but made his league debut on loan at Walsall in the 2004/05 season.

A further loan spell with Bournemouth between August 2005 and January 2006 followed before he made his full debut for the Saints on 25th January against Crystal Palace.

His first goal for the club came in his very next game against Plymouth, and he went on to make over 130 appearances for the South Coast side (scoring 15 goals) before moving to Premier League Wolves in July 2009 for a deal worth a reported 1.2million.

He signed a three-year deal at Molineux but only made nine appearances for Mick McCarthy's side in 2009/10.

In June 2010 Surman moved to Carrow Road for an undisclosed fee, signing a three-year contract. He made his competitive debut for the Canaries against Watford in the opening day of the season.

With a great left foot, Surman became an integral part of the side promoted to the Premier League in 2011. He continued to play under Paul Lambert but then after suffering several niggling injuries was dropped by Chris Hughton to the role of bit part bench warmer.

A season long loan then breathed life back into Surman, who went to Bournemouth in 13/14 and won plenty of admirers. Despite being overlooked by Hughton, he has come back to City under Neil Adams and looks to have a future at Carrow Road.
