Daniel Fox (born 29 May 1986) is a footballer who plays for Southampton as a left wingback but can also play as a left winger. Fox, who represented England at under-21 international level, has since been selected for Scotland, making his debut in the November 2009 loss against Wales.
Fox was born in Winsford, Cheshire and learnt his trade at his boyhood club Everton's youth system but the closest he came to a first team appearance was as an 18-year-old being named on the bench for Everton's home match against Aston Villa in October 2004.
In March 2005, Fox was loaned out by Everton to Stranraer, where he played 11 games (scoring once against Berwick Rangers) and helped them secure promotion to the Scottish First Division before his eventual release from Everton in the summer of 2005. Seven years on, Fox revealed that his time at Stranraer considerably helped with his career development: “It was a great grounding for me and made me realise I had to take every opportunity to make sure I played at the highest level possible."
Walsall moved quickly to sign Fox, where he made over 100 appearances in all competitions. Fox made his debut for the club against Rotherham United, Fox quickly becoming a regular in the first team. In his first season at Walsall, Fox made 33 appearances. The following season, Fox scored his first goal for the club in a 5–0 win against Peterborough United on 12 September 2006. He ended of the season with 44 appearances and three goals. The following season, Fox continued to make an impression at Walsall and scored three goals (against Gillingham, Millwall and Doncaster Rovers). Fox received the first red card of his career in a 1–1 draw against Port Vale after a second bookable offence.
On 28 January 2008, Fox joined Coventry City in a double transfer deal (with his defensive partner Scott Dann also moving to the Ricoh Arena only 72 hours later), after agreeing personal terms and a passing a medical. Before this, Colchester United had agreed a fee with Walsall for Fox. Just days after signing for Coventry, Fox made his debut for the club in a 1–0 defeat against Hull City. Two months after making his debut, Fox scored his first goal in a 5–1 win over Colchester United.
On 24 July 2009, Fox signed for Celtic for an undisclosed fee (believed to be £1.5 million) Coventry's manager, Chris Coleman expressed his disappointment at losing Fox: "I was determined not to lose . . . Danny Fox and so were the club, but it is hard once players are offered a lot of money to go to big, big clubs." 
Fox made his competitive debut for Celtic in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers against Dynamo Moscow. He became a regular free kick taker for Celtic, but did not score a goal, although he did provide assists in games against St Johnstone and Dundee United. Fox made his last appearance for Celtic in an Old Firm derby against Rangers in a 1–1 draw, where he played 90 minutes.
On 29 January 2010, after just six months in Glasgow, Fox joined Premier League club Burnley on a three and a half-year contract for an undisclosed fee, believed to be £1.8 million. On his debut for Burnley, Fox claimed an assist and the winning goal against West Ham United on 6 February in a 2–1 home win. Fox afterwards claimed that his debut with Burnley was "his best day in football".
On 11 August 2011, Fox signed for Southampton on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee. On 16 August 2011, he made his debut coming off from the bench replacing David Connolly in a 5–2 away win over Ipswich Town. At Southampton, Fox began to established himself in the first team, playing in the left back position and helped the team gain promotion to the Premier League.
He declared himself available to play for Scotland through his grandfather. Fox was selected for Scotland's friendly against Japan in October 2009, but had to withdraw due to an injury sustained while playing for Celtic. Fox finally made his debut for Scotland in a 3–0 defeat to Wales in November 2009. He did not feature for Scotland again until August 2012, when he was recalled by Craig Levein for a friendly against Australia. He played 69 minutes and was involved in two goals scored by Scotland in a 3–1 victory. He also played in Scotland's loss against Wales on the 12 October 2012 at left back.
