Club career[edit]

Rochdale[edit]

Cannon made his first team debut for Rochdale on 27 September 2014, coming on as a second-half substitute for Bastien Hery in an away League One match against Leyton Orient at Brisbane Road.[3]

On 20 May 2015, Cannon signed a contract extension at Rochdale to keep him at the club until the summer of 2017.[4]

Cannon scored his first goal for Rochdale in a 3–2 loss to Peterborough United on 6 August 2016,[5] and then scored his second goal for the club on 9 August 2016 in a 3–1 EFL Cup win over Chesterfield.[6]

He was man of the match in Rochdale's 2-2 draw in the 5th round of the FA Cup against Tottenham Hotspur.

He was offered a new contract by Rochdale at the end of the 2017–18 season.[7]

Cannon signed for Portsmouth on 2 January 2019 for an undisclosed fee[8] reported to be around £150,000.[9] Kenny Jackett has suggested that he sees Cannon as an attacking midfielder.[10]
