Conor David Coady (born 25 February 1993) is an English footballer who played as a defensive midfielder for Liverpool.

Liverpool careerEdit

Coady captained the Under 18 team for their 2009-10 and 2010-11 seasons before making his breakthrough into the senior squad. He flew over with the Liverpool squad to play Sparta Prague on 24 February 2011, and was named in the 16 man squad for the first time. He was also named as a substitute on 23 April 2011 for a match against Birmingham City, but did not make it off the bench.

On 13 July 2011, Liverpool played Chinese team Guangdong Sunray Cave as part of their pre season tour of Asia. Coady was brought on to play the second half of the match and was positioned in the midfield. Coady impressed throughout, and in the 72nd minute, he ran onto an Andy Carroll through-ball to score a well struck effort past the Guangdong 'keeper. Coady went on to spend the 2011-12 season with the Reserves, and was the only player to feature in every League and NextGen Series game, also netting five League goals. Coady captained the side during their run to third place in the NextGen Series. For the 2012-13 Under 21s season, Coady was made captain of the side as Andre Wisdom made his step up to first team action. Coady completed the season with eight goals from 27 games. He was Liverpool's top scorer in the NextGen Series with five, although three of these goals came from the penalty spot.

This season also marked Coady's first proper forays into first team football. On 8 November 2012, Coady made his Liverpool debut in a 1-0 defeat to Anzhi, playing an hour before being substituted. Coady was involved with a Premier League matchday squad for the first time in the 2012-13 season on 21 April 2013, being named on the bench for Liverpool's home tie against Chelsea. He eventually made his Premier League debut on 12 May 2013, coming off the bench in the last few minutes of Liverpool's away 3-1 win over Fulham.

On 22 July 2013, it was confirmed that Coady had been sent out to Sheffield United on a six month loan deal, which was later extended until the end of the season. He returned to Liverpool to compete in their post-season friendly away to Shamrock Rovers on 14 May 2014. On 6 August 2014, he sealed a permanent transfer away from Liverpool, moving to Championship side Huddersfield. Huddersfield are thought to have paid an initial £500,000 to complete the deal.
