Career[edit]

Aston Villa[edit]

Hogg was born in Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire.[1] A midfielder, he began his football career as a junior with hometown club Middlesbrough before joining Aston Villa.[2] His progress was interrupted by a cruciate ligament injury in March 2007,[3] but he came back to become Villa reserve team's leading goalscorer as they won the 2008–09 Premier Reserve League Southern section.[4] Handed a two-year contract in July 2008,[5] he was part of Villa's squad that won the 2009 Peace Cup, a pre-season tournament.[3] On 19 August 2010, Hogg made his first competitive start for Aston Villa in the 1–1 draw away to Rapid Vienna in the Europa League Play-off round. Due to injuries to several other midfield players, he made his Premier League debut in the home match against Manchester United on 13 November 2010.[6] In December 2010, Hogg signed a new contract to tie him to the club until 2013.[7]

Darlington (loan)[edit]

In November 2009, Hogg joined League Two's last-placed side Darlington on loan for six weeks.[8] He made his debut in the Football League on 21 November away to Chesterfield; he played the whole game, and scored in the 87th minute to set up a close finish, but Chesterfield's Scott Boden scored twice very late in the game to make the final score 5–2.[9]

Portsmouth (loan)[edit]

On 25 January 2011, Hogg joined Championship club Portsmouth on loan until the end of the season.[7] He made his debut the same day in a 2–1 home league defeat to Burnley.[10]

Watford[edit]

Hogg joined Football League Championship club Watford for an undisclosed fee on 27 August 2011, signing a three-year contract,[11][12][13] joining his former Villa youth team-mate, Troy Deeney, at Vicarage Road in the process. He made his debut for Watford two days later against Aston Villa's arch-rivals, Birmingham City. Hogg finished the season having started 40 games in the league and came fourth in the Watford F.C. Player of the Season award.[14]

Huddersfield Town[edit]

Despite being a first-team regular at Watford, Hogg joined Huddersfield Town on a three-year contract on 29 July 2013, motivated by family reasons to request the transfer.[15] He made his debut for the Terriers in their 1-0 defeat by Nottingham Forest on 3 August. He scored his first goal for the club in the 3-2 win over Charlton Athletic in the Football League Cup on 27 August.
