Arsenal

He joined Arsenal in May 1997 in a £2 million deal.[1] However, faced with the longevity of Arsenal's existing centre backs, Tony Adams, Steve Bould and Martin Keown, and struck by injury problems of his own, Upson rarely had a chance to break into the first team. After spending a year out of the game recovering from an anterior cruciate ligament injury sustained in 1999, Upson only made a handful of first team appearance for Arsenal, in between loan spells at Nottingham Forest in 2000[3] and Crystal Palace in 2001[4] Arsenal Football Club (also known as Arsenal, The Arsenal or The Gunners) are an English professional football club based in Holloway, north London. ...

In 2001-02, his final full season at Arsenal however, Upson did make 22 appearances; these included 14 in the league, earning him a Premier League winners' medal, but a broken leg in February 2002 ruled him out for the rest of the season and Arsenal's FA Cup-winning run as they won the Double. After recovering from his broken leg, Upson joined Reading in September 2002 on a three month loan[5] and with Arsenal's newly-established centre back pairing of Sol Campbell and Kolo Touré keeping him out of the side, he was bought by Birmingham City in January 2003. In total he played 56 times for Arsenal, never scoring. The 2001-2002 season was the 122nd season of competitive football in England. ...

Birmingham City

Birmingham City completed the signing of Upson from Arsenal for a fee of £1 million rising to £3 million depending on appearances in January 2003.[6]


He suffered a leg injury whilst preparing for the local derby against Aston Villa in April 2006 and subsequently missed the rest of the season. Following Birmingham City's relegation to The Championship, Upson was linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United or Reading.[7] He was also linked with a £7 million move to Chelsea,[8] but instead stayed with the club while he worked on regaining his fitness.

West Ham United

On 18 January 2007, West Ham United had a bid for Upson of £4million rejected, with a subsequent improved bid of £6million rejected on 23 January 2007. A £6million offer for Upson from West Ham was finally accepted by Birmingham City on 31 January 2007, with the potential to rise to £7.5million, depending on appearances. Upson agreed a four-and-a-half year contract.[9] However, Upson suffered a calf injury less than 30 minutes into his West Ham United debut against Aston Villa, which West Ham lost 0-1.[10][11].
