Nathaniel Edwin Clyne (born 5 April 1991) is an English footballer who plays as a right-back for Liverpool and the England national team.

He began his career at Crystal Palace, playing regularly in four Championship seasons before a move to Southampton, where he contested three seasons in the Premier League. He joined Liverpool in July 2015 on a five-year contract for a fee of £12.5 million.[4]

Formerly an international at under-19 and under-21 level, Clyne made his senior international debut for England in November 2014.

Club career[edit]

Crystal Palace[edit]

Clyne made his debut for Crystal Palace in a league fixture on 18 October 2008 against Barnsley.[5] He signed a three-year contract with Palace on 20 October 2008,[6] and Neil Warnock stated Clyne "has a bright future in the game".[7] His first career goal came in a 4–2 win at Reading on 8 December 2009.[8] 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.[9]

In the 2010–11 season, Clyne was the youngest player in the Football League to play every single game of that campaign,[10] and won Crystal Palace's Player of the Year award.[11]

Southampton[edit]

Clyne with Southampton in 2012

On 19 July 2012, Clyne signed a 4-year deal with newly promoted Premier League side Southampton.[12][13] He made his debut on 19 August, in a 3–2 defeat against Manchester City at the City of Manchester Stadium.[14] He made his home debut six days later in a 0–2 defeat to Wigan Athletic.[15] He scored his first goal for the club on 22 September, in a 4–1 win at home against Aston Villa, set up by Gastón Ramírez with England under-21 coach Stuart Pearce in attendance at St. Mary's.[16] His second goal for the club came in the FA Cup third round against Burnley on 4 January 2014, opening an eventual 4–3 home victory with a 25-yard strike past Tom Heaton.[17]

Clyne scored in Southampton's first game of the 2014–15 season, a 2–1 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield on 17 August.[18] 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.[19][20]

Liverpool[edit]

On 1 July 2015, Liverpool confirmed the signing of Clyne from Southampton for £12.5 million on a five-year contract, with his former club, Crystal Palace receiving a payment of £2.5m.[21][22] Clyne made his debut in a Liverpool shirt against the True Thai Premier League All Stars in Bangkok on 15 July as part of the club's pre-season tour.[23] Clyne made his competitive debut for Liverpool in a 1-0 win against Stoke City in the first match of the the 2015-16 Premier League season for the club.[24]

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.[25] He was an unused substitute in both matches. On 15 November, he made his full international debut in a home qualifier against Slovenia, playing the full 90 minutes of a 3–1 victory.[26]
