Graham Anthony Kavanagh (born December 2, 1973 in Dublin, Republic of Ireland) is an Irish footballer, currently playing for Carlisle United on loan from Sunderland, having also played for Home Farm, Middlesbrough, Stoke City, Cardiff City, Wigan Athletic and two loan spells at Sheffield Wednesday.

Kavanagh is well known for his hard tackling abilities as well as being able to add a creative dimension to his play. Nicknamed the 'Silver Fox' he has recently operated in a holding central midfield role, a slight contrast to his previous role at Cardiff, where he operated a more advanced attacking role as well as being club captain.


Kavanagh began his career at Home Farm, before joining Middlesbrough in 1991 but struggled to ever hold down a first team place and was sold to Stoke City in 1996, after a short loan spell at the club, for £250,000. He was eventually to move to Cardiff City in 2001 for £1m, and went on to score fifteen times in his first season at the club and help them to promotion the following year when they beat Queens Park Rangers in the Division two play-off final.

During the 2004-05 season Cardiff chairman Sam Hammam revealed that the club was in serious financial trouble and as such a number of players left the club to attempt to regain losses, including Kavanagh who signed for Wigan Athletic for a fee close to £400,000.cite news
