15. Sylvain Distin

Sylvain DistinDate of Birth: December 16, 1977

Clubs: Tours, Gueugnon, Paris St-Germain, Newcastle United [Loan], Manchester City, Portsmouth, Everton

Position: Centre back

Nationality: French

Finest Everton moment: A goal on his European debut against AEK Athens in the 2010 Europa League.

Initially brought in as a ‘like-for-like replacement’ for the out-going Joleon Lescott, Distin was thrown in the deep end at the start of his Everton career. Distin remained at the centre of the Everton defence throughout his maiden campaign, despite an injury and a dramatic chain of centre- back partners (Yobo, Heitinga, Hibbert, Neill, Jagielka, Senderos). His main attributes are his strength and recovery pace.
