Comment
Youth team midfielder that hovered on the fringes of the first team in 2008-09 then emerged the following season after a fine performance in City's pre-season China tournament and a debut goal against Southend United in the League Cup.  As the Tigers' second Premier League wore on, and relegation beckoned, Cairney made his mark with a series of composed midfield displays, keeping the ball well, passing intelligently and without fear.  He even lashed in a twenty yard volley at Goodison Park.  As good a youth prospect as City have had for many years, Cairney returned to the Championship representing the future of the cash-strapped Tigers - but amid rumours of joining Jimmy Bullard's drinking coterie, Tom was a peripheral figure for much of the season.  2011-12 was Tom's chance to put his career on track and he performed with skill and focus on the occasions he was given the nod.  He carried this form into 2012-13 despite a vicious lunge at Doncaster damaging his knee for three months, and he remained a capable Championship squad player.  But on elevation to the Premier League Steve Bruce considered Tom needed to gain experience elsewhere and he was loaned to Blackburn for half a season, a move made permanent in January 2014 after a string of fine performances.  After a year and a half of impressive performances Tom headed south, signing for Fulham.
