Did You Know? Darron Gibson's favourite band is Westlife!

In 2007, Gibson, who was born in Derry, Northern Ireland, was at the centre of a dispute between the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) and the Irish Football Association (IFA), after he opted to play for the Republic of Ireland instead of Northern Ireland. The issue was referred to FIFA and was discussed in the Northern Ireland Assembly.

On 13 January 2012, Gibson signed for Everton for an undisclosed fee after speaking to former Everton player Wayne Rooney.

In early 2012 Gibson was instrumental in helping out his old club Manchester United in their quest for the Premier League title when he scored for Everton to beat Man Utd's rivals Manchester City at Goodison Park. Sadly for United their rivals would go on to claim the title anyway!

During 2013 Gibson suffered a few injuries which blighted his season with Everton, however he did return later on to help the Blues finish the season strong despite carrying another injury.
