Ugo Ehiogu - Club Career - Middlesbrough


His career at Boro got off on the wrong foot when he was forced to limp off four minutes into his debut at Charlton Athletic with a hamstring injury which kept him out for months. Whilst at Middlesbrough, Ehiogu quickly became a mainstay in the central defence since joining the club and rejoining his former team mate Gareth Southgate in central defence. He missed the start of the 2003–04 season with a knee injury but returned to play his part in Boro's League Cup success against Bolton Wanderers. This knee injury returned in the 2004–05 season and again he was forced to miss many important games, although Boro still managed to scrape into the UEFA Cup for a second successive season.

He agreed a move to West Bromwich Albion, the club where he had started as a 16 year-old, during the January transfer window of 2006, but this move was cancelled when a number of Middlesbrough players became injured. On 23 November 2006 he moved to Leeds United on loan for two months until January. Ehiogu was a regular in Leeds' starting lineup during his loan move, usually alongside Matt Heath in central defence. He scored one goal against Barnsley and also an own goal during his spell at Leeds which expired on 1 January 2007 after he admitted to manager, Dennis Wise that he could not play two matches in three days.
