Steven James "Steve" Sidwell (born 14 December 1982) is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Brighton & Hove Albion. He is a former England U21 international.

Sidwell began his career at Arsenal and after winning two FA Youth Cups he had constructive loan spells at Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion. Sidwell joined Reading in January 2003 and spent four-and-a-half-years with the Royals helping them to gain promotion to the Premier League in 2005–06. He joined Chelsea on a free transfer for the 2007–08 season, however opportunities were limited at Stamford Bridge and he moved on to Aston Villa in July 2008 for a fee of £5 million. In his two-and-a-half-year stay at Villa Park he played 64 times scoring four goals. Sidwell then spent three-and-a-half-years at Craven Cottage making 115 appearances scoring 17 goals. His time at Fulham ended after the club was relegated from the Premier League in 2013–14 and he joined Stoke City in June 2014 on a free transfer. He made only 13 appearances for the club, and rejoined Brighton & Hove Albion, initially on loan, in January 2016.
