Wayne Neville Routledge is an English football player who currently features for the English Premier League side Swansea City. He plays as a winger.

Routledge made his debut in professional football for Crystal Palace in 2001 and after four years moved to Tottenham Hotspur, but not before he had made 110 league appearances and had scored 11 goals.

Routledge played for Spurs between 2005 and 2008 but he was never really rated at White Hart Lane. He played on loan for Portsmouth and Fulham in 2006 and 2007 and in January 2008 was signed by impressive Aston Villa for £1.25 million on an 18-month contract.

Routledge, though, failed to impress at Villa Park and moved on loan to Cardiff City for the 2008-09 campaign. Thereafter, Queens Park Rangers signed him up and after one year in 2010 Newcastle United came calling after they were impressed with his performances at Loftus Road.

After a short loan stint back at his old club QPR, Routledge was snapped up by Swansea City in the summer of 2011. At the Liberty Stadium, the Englishman has regained his form and is now an important part of the Swans team, winning the League Cup in 2012-13.
