  • Player profile

    Ferdinand arrived at the Walkers Stadium with his best years very much behind him but he still had a big impact at the Walkers Stadium, netting 12 goals in 29 Premier League appearances for the club in a one-season stint in 2003-04.

    The powerful, typically English centre forward will be remembered most for successful spells with Queens Park Rangers, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur. He went on to endure two relegations, first with a season at West Ham, and then with a season with the Foxes. Despite City being relegated, Ferdinand chipped in with a handsome amount of goals, despite being 37.

    He rejected a new contract offer following Leicester's relegation, instead opting to join top-flight club Bolton Wanderers. By then, his career was all-but done and he went on for mini spells with Reading and Watford before retiring.
