The midfielder turned professional in 1981, going on to make over 350 career appearances for the Saddlers during his eight-year stay with the club.

After retiring from playing, the 55-year-old moved into management, taking charge of West Bromwich Albion as caretaker manager in 2006, before becoming assistant manager at Leicester City twice and Hull City inbetween the two spells with the Foxes. 

In February 2017, he was appointed manager of Leicester following the sacking of title-winning manager Claudio Ranieri.
