Height of Aaron Cresswell, Weight, and Body Stats
He has a height of 5 ft 7 in and weighs around 66kg.
Cresswell began his career with Liverpool, progressing through the academy before being released when he was 15 years old. After leaving Liverpool, he joined Tranmere Rovers’ development system before securing his first professional deal with the club in July 2008. He made his first-team debut on November 1, 2008, in a 1-0 loss to Milton Keynes Dons in League One.
Although he was offered a new contract at the end of the 2010-11 season, Tranmere manager Les Parry predicted Cresswell would reject it, saying, “Aaron has four or five Championship clubs trying to sign him; if I had to guess, Aaron might be leaving us this summer.”
In June 2011, the media reported that Ipswich Town had won the race to sign the player, beating out West Bromwich Albion and Doncaster Rovers, despite the fact that the clubs had failed to agree on a fee, which was anticipated to go to a transfer tribunal. It was then announced that a three-year contract had been signed.
On 6 August 2011, he made his debut for the club, starting in a 0-3 away win over Bristol City at Ashton Gate. On March 17, he scored his first goal for the club, a late winner in a 3-2 home triumph over Peterborough United at Portman Road. During his debut season at Portman Road, he appeared in 46 games in all competitions, scoring one. He was named the club’s Player of the Year for the 2011-12 season.
West Ham United
Cresswell signed a five-year contract with West Ham United on July 3, 2014, for an unknown cost reported to be in the region of £3.75 million, plus add-on clauses. On August 16, 2014, he made his West Ham debut in a 1-0 home loss to Tottenham Hotspur. He scored his first goal for the club in a 1-0 win over Newcastle United at the Boleyn Ground on November 29.
Cresswell was voted Hammer of the Year and Player’s Player of the Year in May 2015. Cresswell appeared in all 38 Premier League games and four FA Cup matches for West Ham in 2014-15. Cresswell signed a new deal with West Ham in June 2015 that would keep him at the club until 2020, with a two-year extension option.
