Chris Sutton (born March 10, 1973) is an English footballer who currently plays for Birmingham City. He previously played for Norwich, Blackburn, Chelsea and Celtic. . He has also been capped once by England.

Sutton is able to play in either defence or attack, although usually he plays in the latter role. For a big man, Sutton has an exceptionally good touch on the ball which has even led to an ability to play in midfield on occasion. Sutton has been a prolific goalscorer throughout his career and was even joint top goalscorer (with Dion Dublin and Michael Owen) in the English Premiership for the 1997/1998 season.

He became the most expensive player in English football in July 1994, when he was transferred from Norwich City to Blackburn Rovers for 5million. In his first season at Ewood Park he developed a strong partnership with Alan Shearer and scored 15 Premiership goals to secure the club's first league title since 1914. But a succession of injuries combined with a loss of form saw him make just 13 Premiership appearances during 1995-96 and fail to score a goal. He regained his form over the next three seasons and even won an England cap in November 1997, although he was left out of the World Cup squad after a fall-out with national coach Glenn Hoddle.

Blackburn were relegated from the Premiership at the end of 1998-99, just four years after being crowned champions, and Sutton was sold to Chelsea for 10million. However, he failed to live up to his promise, scoring just one goal in 28 appearances, and he was sold to Scottish Premier League side Celtic for 6million in the summer of 2000. Sutton's goals helped Celtic win three SPL titles, two Scottish Cups and two Scottish League Cups as well as reaching a UEFA Cup final. He joined Birmingham City on a free transfer in January 2006, and is currently faced with task of inspiring the Blues to Premiership safety. After that, it is unclear how much longer he will play before retiring.
