From 1989 to 1998, Dwight played for Aston Villa. He was a right
winger until the 1995-96 season, when he switched to centre
forward and quickly established himself as one of the
Premiership's top strikers. In August 1998, he was transferred
to Manchester United for £12.6 million.
In his first three seasons, Yorke was a key player in guiding
his club to three successive Premiership titles including a
unique treble of the Premiership title, F.A. Cup and Champions
In 2001-02, Yorke lost his place in the line-up following the
arrival of Ruud van Nistelrooy. The following summer he was sold
to Blackburn Rovers for £2 million, spending two years at the
club before joining Birmingham City on a free transfer.
He was once in a much publicised relationship with British
supermodel Jordan, and has a child with her called Harvey. They
famously made home videos of their sexual antics which were
brought to the attention of the media.
