Huws scored twice in 17 appearances at Birmingham City last season – and would have made it three but for a wonderful save by Scott Carson at St Andrews. His goal at Middlesbrough in fact won the club’s Goal of the Season award.
Signed from Swansea City in 2009, where he had been in the Academy during Roberto Martinez’s time in South Wales, the midfielder made his Manchester City debut and so far only appearance for the club in January 2014 in an FA Cup replay at home to Blackburn Rovers.
He was captain of City’s Development Squad prior to tasting first team league action at Northampton during the 12-13 season, alongside Lee Nicholls.
Emyr joined Latics on a permanent basis on the final day of the summer transfer window in 2014.
