Bradden Inman - Brad to his friends - made the big decision to move from Australia to join Newcastle's Academy as a 14-year-old, and he has so far progressed to the very fringes of the first-team.

Twice the midfielder has been on the bench - against Manchester City in the top flight in January 2009 and in the Carling Cup at Peterborough in September 2009 - but has yet to make his competitive debut.

He did, however, play in a pre-season friendly at Carlisle in 2010, which he regards as a "special game" for him.

Although born down under, Inman has represented Scotland at youth level - he qualifies through his mother.

When he first arrived at Newcastle, he was nicknamed 'Kaka' for his likeness to the Brazilian star. And although he still has a long way to go to match him as player, Inman's potential was recognised when he won the Wor Jackie award in 2010.

In November 2012, he joined League One side Crewe Alexandra on loan.
