Nicholas Jonathan "Nick" Barmby (born 11 February 1974 in Hullmarker, Englandmarker) is an English footballer who plays for Hull City as a midfielder. He has amassed a total of 23 caps for his country, with his first appearance coming in 1995 and his most recent in 2001.

Club career

Growing up on the west side of Hull, he played for local teams Springhead and National Tigers as a boy, showing talent from a very early age. Consequently, he ended his education at the local Kelvin Hall High School (where he started in 1985) early in order to complete his studies at the FA's School Of Excellence, while also honing his skills for the professional game. His father, Jeff Barmby, was also a player in his younger days and became his son's advisor and agent as his skills began to attract the attention of various clubs.

Tottenham Hotspur

Barmby eventually decided to sign for Tottenham Hotspur, joining them on leaving school in the summer of 1990. His first game for Tottenham was against Hull City at Boothferry Parkmarker in a testimonial match for Garreth Roberts, and he scored two goals. He made his competitive debut four months later against Sheffield Wednesday. He established himself as a regular player in 1992–93, when still only 18 years old. During his time at the club he became one of Ossie Ardilles' Five Man attack, along with Juergen Klinsmann, Teddy Sheringham, Darren Anderton and Ilie Dumitrescu. He played 100 games and scored 27 goals in all competitions for Spurs, playing on the losing side in two FA Cup semi-finals, before becoming Middlesbrough's most expensive signing in a £5.25 million deal in June 1995.

Middlesbrough

Barmby proved to be an exciting addition to an ambitious Boro side who played a cavalier attacking game. He scored the first competitive goal at the new Riverside Stadiummarker, Barmby stayed at Middlesbrough for 17 months, before heading to Everton, who paid a record £5.75 million for him, a small profit on the price they paid for him. It was felt that the offer had to be accepted as Middlesbrough were embroiled in a relegation battle.

Everton

In his first full season at the club, Barmby had a moment of deja vu as his new team found themselves in a Premiership basement battle. However, they survived despite Barmby missing a number of games through injury. He stayed there for three-and-a-half years before doing the unthinkable, and heading across Stanley Parkmarker for Liverpool for a fee of £6 million. It was the first time since striker Dave Hickson in 1959 that Everton had sold a player to Liverpool. Manchester United also expressed an interest in signing Barmby to cover for their missing players at the start of the 2000–01 season, but they were eventually outbid by Liverpool.

Liverpool

He was involved in Liverpool's successful season of 2000–01 in which they won the FA Cup, Football League Cup and UEFA Cup). He scored against his previous club Everton in the Merseyside derby, and scored a penalty in the shootout against Birmingham City in the League Cup final. Persistent injury and lack of form prompted his sale to Leeds United for £2.75 million, where he linked up with Terry Venables - his first ever manager.

Leeds United and return to Hull

Barmby made little impact at a Leeds side quickly sliding down the Premiership table, and missed much of the action during his two seasons with them in the Premiership. Despite this, he once again achieved the feat of scoring on his debut, this time in the 3-0 opening day victory over Manchester City. He spent a loan spell at Nottingham Forest during the 2003–04 season, scoring once against Gillingham, before moving to his hometown club, Hull City.

In 2004, Barmby returned to his hometown team Hull City on a free transfer following Leeds's relegation from the top flight.Barmby helped City to promotion from League One in his first season at the club with nine goals, including the fastest goal in City's history, after seven seconds in a match against Walsall on Saturday 6 November 2004. He played for Hull in the 2007–08 Football League Championship campaign, during which they were promoted through the Championship play-offs to the Premier League, when a season earlier they came close to being relegated to League One. 2008–09 is the first season in which Hull City have played top division football. He scored his first goal of Hull's first ever Premier League season against Sunderland on 20 December 2008, making him one of only five players to have scored for 6 different teams in the Premier League.

International

Barmby's England career stretched to 13 starts and 10 substitute appearances accounting for four goals, including the first goals of Glenn Hoddle's and Sven-Göran Eriksson's reigns as England manager, in a 1996 3–0 World Cup qualifier victory against Moldova and a 2001 3–0 friendly victory over Spain at Villa Parkmarker, Birminghammarker. Barmby played for his country at Euro 96 and Euro 2000, and also played in England's historic 5–1 away victory over rivals Germany on 1 September 2001.
