Stephen Michael Gleeson (born 3 August 1988) is an Irish footballer who plays as a midfielder for Football League Championship club Birmingham City.
Gleeson played youth football in his native Dublin before coming to England at the age of 15 to join Wolverhampton Wanderers. He rarely played first-team football for them, but spent time on loan to lower-league clubs Stockport County (three separate spells), Hereford United and Milton Keynes Dons, before signing a three-year contract with the latter club in 2009. After five years, during which time he made more than 200 appearances in all competitions, he moved on to Birmingham City.
At international level, Gleeson was capped twice for the Republic of Ireland in 2007. He also represented his country at under-age levels, and made 16 appearances for the under-21 team.Close
