Mutch started his career at Birmingham City and went on to make 36 appearances for their first-team as a youngster after rising up through their youth ranks, as well as having loan spells away with the likes of Hereford and Doncaster Rovers.

Cardiff City came calling in 2012 and he scored seven goals in 60 games for the Bluebirds, helping them gain promotion to the Premier League in his first year at the club.

The ex-England international moved on to QPR for half a season with the London club in the top flight during the 2014/15 campaign before Crystal Palace signed him in the January.
