Nathaniel Edwin Clyne (born 5 April 1991) is an English footballer who plays as a right back for Southampton.

Club career[edit]

Crystal Palace[edit]

Clyne made his debut for Crystal Palace in a league fixture on 18 October 2008 against Barnsley.[3] He signed a three-year contract with Palace on 20 October 2008,[4] and Neil Warnock stated Clyne "has a bright future in the game".[5] His first career goal came in a 4-2 win at Reading on 8 December 2009.[6] In February 2010 he was offered a move to Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers, but rejected it without even entering talks with manager Mick McCarthy.[7]

In the 2010–11 season, Clyne was the youngest player in the Football League to play every single game of that campaign,[8] and won Crystal Palace's Player of the Year award.[9]

Southampton[edit]

On 19 July 2012, Clyne signed a 4-year deal with newly promoted Premier League side Southampton.[10][11] He made his debut on 19 August 2012, in a 3–2 defeat against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.[12] He made his home debut on 25 August in a 2–0 defeat to Wigan Athletic.[13] He scored his first goal for the club on 22 September 2012, in a 4–1 win at home against Aston Villa.[14] His second goal for the club came in the FA Cup against Burnley on 4 January 2014.[15]

Clyne scored in Southampton's first game of the 2014–15 season, a 2–1 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield on 17 August.[16] He scored his second goal of the 2014–15 season on 23 September, with a long-range effort which gave Southampton a 2–1 victory at Arsenal in the League Cup third round.[17][18]

International career[edit]

On 2 October 2014, Clyne was named in the England squad for Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Estonia later that month.[19] He was an unused substitute in both matches.
