Given that he's spent the last five years terrorising defences across the lower divisions, it's a source of some irony that Jordan Rhodes actually began his career as a goalkeeper.
Starting at Ipswich, Rhodes had a number of loan spells before joining Huddersfield Town in the summer of 2009. He wasted no time opening his goalscoring account, coming off the bench to score on his debut.
Three days later, he made his home debut against Stockport County and scored two goals. In his next game against Southampton, he scored another two. Such was the impact Rhodes made, he finished his first season as top scorer with 23 goals.
The following campaign was interrupted by injuries, but Rhodes again finished as the club's top scorer with 22 goals. Then in the season after that, Rhodes scored 13 goals in his first 13 games in all competitions. He also became the first player to score back-to-back hat-tricks for the club since the 1920s.
Rhodes finished the 2011/12 season with 36 goals, making him the top scorer across all professional English leagues. After just two-and-a-half years at the club, he had become Huddersfield's eighth top scorer of all time.
This led to Blackburn spending £8m to secure his services in August 2012—a record fee for a player outside the top flight in England. In his first season he justified this price tag with 26 goals, becoming Blackburn's player of the season in the process. This season Rhodes has started in clinical fashion, netting nine goals in his first seven games.
Rhodes boasts a phenomenal goalscoring record across League One and the Championship. Given that he's only 23, he's a player who still has his best years ahead of him.
