Wales midfielder Joe Allen followed Brendan Rodgers in leaving Swansea for Liverpool in the summer of 2012.
His keen eye for a pass and composure on the ball was nurtured by Rodgers during the time the pair spent together at the Liberty Stadium and, as a result, the midfielder possesses a consummate grasp of Rodgers' possession football philosophy.
Having come through the club's youth ranks, Allen got his first taste of senior football as a substitute in Swansea's final game of the 2006-07 campaign against Blackpool.
Former captain and Swansea manager Roberto Martinez then rewarded him with his first professional contract in August 2007.
Swansea secured qualification to the Championship for the start of the 2008-09 season and Allen joined Wrexham on a one-month loan deal. An ankle ligament injury restricted him to just two appearances for the Blue Square Premier outfit but his return to Swansea heralded the beginning of a meteoric rise for the Welshman.
Martinez began to use him more and more, with Allen claiming his first goal in a Swansea shirt with a sensational strike against fierce rivals Cardiff City in April 2009.
Swansea missed out on the play-offs by six points the following month but Allen's contribution to their valiant promotion push did not go unnoticed and he was bestowed with the honour of the Swans' Young Player of the Year.
The Welsh club again missed out on promotion the next year under Paulo Sousa but 2010-11 saw Rodgers take over as manager and finally guide Swansea to the top flight. Allen was a key component of their success, making 43 appearances, form which he carried through with ease to the Barclays Premier League.
The midfielder shone throughout a remarkable 2011-12 season which saw him net a career record of four goals and was capped by another Young Player of the Year award.
On the international front, Allen made his debut for Wales in a friendly against Estonia in May 2009. He went on to star for Team GB in the 2012 London Olympics.
It was on the back of an Olympic appearance that he arrived at Liverpool, making his debut on August 18, 2012, and despite the Reds losing their season-opener 3-0 to West Brom, the midfield technician put in an impressive performance.
A week later, after another cultured midfield display versus champions Man City, Rodgers commented that his new boy would soon be worth double the 15million Liverpool paid for his services.
Allen's first goal in a Liverpool jersey came on January 27, 2013 when he struck a powerful deflected volley against Oldham Athletic in the FA Cup.

Bacary Sagna has clocked up well over 150 appearances for Arsenal andyet it's hard to remember him making a single glaring error since hisarrival in the summer of 2007. That pretty much sums up the Frenchright-back - he is Arsenal's Mr Reliable.
Bacary took to English football like a duck to water, proving himselfto be an exemplary defender. His positional awareness, tough tacklingand aerial power have strengthened Arsenal's right side and few wingersget the better of him
The Frenchman has also impressed on the front foot. Neat and tidy inpossession, his willingness to overlap gives Arsenal the width theyneed to stretch defences and he is one of the finest crossers at theClub.
Bacary is a 'non-homegrown' player in Arsenal's official 2011/12Premier League squad. 2007/08
Bacary joined the Club in the summer of 2007 and declared: 'It is greatto be joining Arsenal and I'm excited to be playing alongside manygreat players. I'm looking forward to playing at Emirates Stadium andwinning trophies for the Club and all the supporters."
He instantly established himself as the Club's first-choice right backwith some impressive displays, making a total of 40 appearances beforehis season was cut short as a result of an ankle injury.
The Frenchman scored his first goal in an Arsenal shirt at StamfordBridge against Chelsea on March 23, which turned out to be his onlygoal of the season.
Bacary topped off an amazing debut campaign by being named in the PFAPremier League Team of the Year.
2008/09: Bacary began the new season by signing a new long-termcontract with the Club in June. He continued his form of the previousseason he as made the right-back spot his own, making 34 Premier Leaguestarts.
He was a consistent performer in the backline and became recognised asone of the best attacking full backs in the league as well as a soliddefender.
Silverware eluded Bacary again but he insisted that success was justaround the corner. "This is a great Club and I'm proud to wear theshirt," he said. "We have a great squad of players at the Club and Iknow that we can achieve something."
2009/10: Like his fellow full-back Gael Clichy, Bacary had someadjustments to make at the start of the 2009/10 campaign: Arsenal'sshift to a 4-3-3 formation meant less cover in wide positions and feweropportunities to bomb forward, but Bacary adapted with a minimum offuss.
He still got forward when possible and is certainly one of Arsenal'sfinest crossers - he had three assists in October alone and provided aperfect delivery for Nicklas Bendtner to head a last-gasp winneragainst Wolves in April. But Bacary's no-nonsense defending remains hisforte and Arsenal looked significantly more solid when he was in theTeam.
