On 15 March 1990, Arsenal sold Niall Quinn to Manchester City.

Quinn signed for Arsenal not long after his 17th birthday and made his debut against Liverpool in 1985. He went on to make a total of 12 appearances that season before finally managing to hold down a place as the main striker during the 1986/87 campaign. He played 35 League games that term and scored eight goals.

The striker made a total of 94 appearances during his seven years in north London and found the back of the net 20 times before Arsenal sold him to Manchester City for a reported £800,000. Once there, he scored on his debut against Chelsea and went on to spend six years in Manchester, making 204 league appearances and scoring 66 goals.

Quinn signed for Sunderland in 1996 for a club record £1.3m and despite spending the first six months sidelined with a knee injury, soon formed one of the most prolific strike-partnerships of the 1990s alongside Kevin Phillips.

The former Republic of Ireland international is now a pundit.
