Club career

Sunderland

Waghorn was born in South Shields, From the age of eight Waghorn played for his local team Sunderland and he progressed through the youth system at the Academy of Light to reach the Under-18 team. Waghorn scored the first hat-trick of his career on 12 December 2007 in a 6–1 win against Norwich City in the FA Youth Cup third round.[3] He scored twice in a 4–2 win against local rivals Newcastle United a few days later at the Academy of Light, both of the goals being penalties.[4]

Waghorn made his first team debut against Manchester United at the Stadium of Light on 26 December 2007; the match finished 4–0 to Manchester United.[5] The player, usually a striker, had to play in left midfield, and after the match manager Roy Keane heaped praise on the young player, predicting that he would have a "long and successful career".[6]

This performance earned him another call up to the first team squad for the match against Bolton Wanderers, where he was an unused substitute.[7] He made his second appearance for Sunderland as an 81st minute substitute against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park,[8] and his second start for the club in an FA Cup tie against Wigan Athletic in January 2008, where he was replaced by Andrew Cole in the 57th minute.[9] Waghorn signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract with Sunderland in February 2008, which Keane described as good for both Sunderland and the player.[10] His only appearance for the club in the 2008–09 season was against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.[11]

Loan to Charlton Athletic

Waghorn joined Championship side Charlton Athletic on a month's loan on 17 November 2008.[12] On 15 December 2008, Waghorn scored his first goal, in a 2–2 draw at home against Derby County.[13] The loan deal was extended for a second month.[14] He made seven appearances for the club in a season that would end in relegation to League One.

Loan to Leicester City

On 6 August 2009, Waghorn joined Leicester City on loan until 11 January 2010, having turned down interest from Carlisle United.[15][16] Waghorn made his competitive debut for Leicester as a substitute against Swansea City, scoring the equalising goal as Leicester won 2–1.[17] His first 11 games for Leicester were all as a substitute, but Waghorn expressed his satisfaction as an impact player.[18] He made his first league start for Leicester against Reading, scoring the winning goal.[19] Waghorn scored his first professional brace against Queens Park Rangers in a 4–0 win.[20] His overall performance earned him the club's young player of the year award on 28 April 2010.[21] Waghorn missed the last penalty kick in a 4–3 defeat on penalties to Cardiff City in the Championship play-offs semi-final second leg on 12 May 2010.[22] He scored 12 goals in 28 starts for the club during his loan period.[23]

Leicester City

On 31 August 2010, Waghorn rejoined Leicester City on a permanent deal for a fee rising to £3 million to help fund Sunderland's record signing Asamoah Gyan.[24] He was disappointed with the lack of opportunities at his former club,[25] and happily dropped down a division because the lure of playing regular football was too good to turn down.[26] Waghorn made his debut in a 1-1 draw against Coventry City on 11 September,[27] scoring his first goal in a 4-3 defeat to Norwich City on 28 September.[28] He failed to win a regular place when Sven-Göran Eriksson became manager on 3 October.[29] Nonetheless, injury concerns at the club prevented Waghorn from joining Derby County on loan during the January transfer window.[30] A hamstring injury suffered during training ruled Waghorn out for the rest of the 2011 season on 6 April.[31]

Loan to Hull City

Hull City completed the loan signing of Martyn Waghorn on 31 August 2011 and joined them on a temporary basis until January 2012.[32] He made his debut on 10 September 2011 in the 0–1 away win against Peterborough United.[33] On 27 September 2011 against Doncaster Rovers at the Keepmoat Stadium, Matty Fryatt found himself with space to deliver a low cross along the six-yard box and although Neil Sullivan might have been disappointed not to cut it out, Waghorn was there to apply the finish from close range.[34]

International career

Youth

Waghorn has represented England under-19's twice against Spain and Bosnia and Herzegovina.[35]

Waghorn was included in the 27 man England under-21 squad to face both Azerbaijan and Israel in September 2011.[36][37] He made his debut in the game against Azerbaijan, a 6–0 victory, and scored a goal in the 79th minute, having come on as a substitute 12 minutes earlier.[38] In his second appearance for the under-21 team Waghorn was in the starting line-up. He scored a header against Israel from an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain cross.[39]
