The big striker came through the ranks of Wimbledon, and scored in the first minute of his Wimbledon full senior debut against Newcastle at St James' Park in September 1997.

A tricky forward, Cort was brought in by Bobby Robson in July 2000 for a fee of 7m. He scored on his Newcastle debut against Derby, but was later taken off as he had trouble with his hamstring. Currently still injured, Cort's return is eagerly anticipated by fans.
