Position: Striker

Biography: When Chelsea lost Pierluigi Casiraghi, Mark Hughes and Gianluca Vialli in the summer of 1999, they broke the club record and paid 10million to bring Sutton to Stamford Bridge. The move was hardly a success after he took eight games to break his duck with a goal against Manchester United. Then after a 28 game run of firing blanks and with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Eidur Gudjohnsen the first choice striking partnership, he was sold to Celtic at a 4million loss. Has been manager of League Two Lincoln City since September 2009.
