A forward with fantastic Championship pedigree, Hulse is one of a long line of players to be produced by the Crewe Alexandra conveyor belt.

Following in the footsteps of Dean Ashton, Hulse scored 45 goals in 116 appearances before West Bromwich Albion signed the striker for £750,000.

Despite helping the Baggies to promotion, he was deemed surplus to requirements and moved on to Leeds United the following season for £1.1m.

With the Whites not reaching the heights of promotion, Hulse opted to sign for Neil Warnock's Sheffield United - a recently promoted outfit but injury curtailed his top flight experience and the Blades were eventually relegated.

His value appreciated nonetheless following a disappointing spell at Bramall Lane as Derby County netted the striker for £1.75m and expressed a great loyalty to the club in turning down moves to Premier League clubs during his spell.

After 82 appearances and 28 goals, manager Nigel Clough believed it was time for the forward to move on and in August 2010, Neil Warnock signed the striker once more for Queens Park Rangers.

Hulse played a bit-part role in Rangers' promotion to the Premier League, before being left out of Warnock's 25-man squad. His career was then resurrected by new boss Mark Hughes who named him in his 25-man squad after back to back appearances.

The arrival of Bobby Zamora pushed Hulse down the pecking order but he underlined his ambition to stay put and fight for his place. He was loaned out to Millwall and was effective in getting them to an FA Cup Semi-Final.
