Club career[edit]

Crystal Palace[edit]

Clyne made his debut for Crystal Palace in a league fixture on 18 October 2008 against Barnsley.[2] He signed a three-year contract with Palace on 20 October 2008,[3] and Neil Warnock stated Clyne "has a bright future in the game".[4] His first career goal came in a 4-2 win at Reading on 8 December 2009.[5] 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.[6]

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

Southampton[edit]

On 19 July 2012, Clyne signed a 4-year deal with newly promoted Premier League side Southampton.[7][8] He made his debut on 19 August 2012, in a 3–2 defeat against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.[9] He made his home debut on 25 August in a 2–0 defeat to Wigan Athletic.[10] He scored his first goal for the club on 22 September 2012, in a 4–1 win at home against Aston Villa.[11] His second goal for the club came in the FA Cup against Burnley on 4 January 2014.[12]
