I am an experienced sports journalist, based in the wonderful city of Liverpool in the United Kingdom - home of The Beatles, two cathedrals, exquisite architecture and two of the biggest teams in world soccer.
I have worked for some of the biggest media outlets in the UK, including the Press Association, Trinity Mirror and News International.
And I have interviewed high-profile sporting figures such as David Beckham, Mike Tyson, Johan Cruyff and Sir Alex Ferguson during my career.
I am an Everton fan but appreciate the joy and beauty of soccer played by all great teams and players.
Most recently, I covered football and powerlifting at London 2012 for the Olympic and Paralympic News Service.
Now I'm delighted to join the Bleacher Report team as a sports writer and looking forward to communicating with fellow supporters and new soccer fans from across the globe.

Hello, Ian. I made a few additional changes to your article about the Summer Transfer Window Gossip, but my editor's feedback doesn't seem to be showing up properly. On an additional note I said, "Excuse my mistake, I meant to say that I added "reported" to the beginning of the sentence, 'as reported by Jamie Jackson and David Hytner of The Guardian,' for clarity." Thank you!
No problem at all, Ian.
