He also gained 17 England caps between 1995 and 1999. Redknapp was also capped 17 times by England, scoring one goal. He made 13 appearances for the club before attracting the attention of Liverpool, who signed him on 15 January 1991. Kenny Dalglish had paid £350,000 for Redknapp, who was still only 17 at the time. He was one of the most expensively signed teenagers in English football around this time. Following Dalglish’s departure, Redknapp was part of a transitional Liverpool team under Graeme Souness. At this time, Redknapp had also become one of the mass-marketed poster boy icons of the newly developing FA Premier League where, alongside other photogenic young players like Manchester United players Ryan Giggs and Lee Sharpe, he was used ceaselessly in commercials, advertising spots and for the league’s promotional purposes in merchandising and sales, with the result being that football stars had become idols on par with rock stars and pop stars, by and around the mid to late 1990s.

Jamie Frank Redknapp (born 25 June 1973, in Barton on Sea, Hampshire) is a retired English footballer who was active from 1989 until 2005. A midfielder, Redknapp played for England 17 times between 1995 and 1999. Kenny Dalglish had paid £350,000 for Redknapp, who was still only 17 at the time. Redknapp was the last player to be signed by manager Kenny Dalglish before his surprising resignation on 22 February 1991 and later became the youngest Liverpool player to appear in European competition, at 18 years 120 days when making his Liverpool debut against Auxerre in the UEFA Cup on 23 October 1991, by which time Liverpool were being managed by Graeme Souness. On the pitch, Redknapp established himself as a key midfielder during the time Roy Evans managed at Anfield. Many felt he was failing to achieve, considering his talents – his sole career winners’ medal was from the 1995 League Cup Final. Injury later ruled him out of contention for both the 1998 FIFA World Cup and 2000 UEFA European Championship.
