Ian Harte, Reading FC
Premier League new boys Reading FC have a remarkable veteran on their side: former Leeds United left-back Ian Harte.
The 34-year-old Irishman has an amazing 10 years of Premier League experience, dating back to 1995.
Following Leeds United's disastrous relegation and financial implosion in 2004, Harte moved to La Liga side Levante. Roy Keane brought Harte back to the Premier League in 2007 during his ill-fated spell in charge of Sunderland.
Release from Sunderland a year later marked the beginning of several years in football wilderness, before making a remarkable comeback with Reading.
Despite his age and lack of pace, Harte's gifted dead-ball delivery will stand him in good stead to make a final splash in the Premier League.
