In an interview with football magazine FourFourTwo Dublin says he shared a house with Jason Statham shortly after signing his first professional contract at Norwich.

He told the magazine: “I signed my first professional contract at Norwich as a 16-year-old – I think it was a three-month deal worth £80 per week, and I thought I was absolutely minted!

“I was living in Great Yarmouth with my brother, Ash, who was a DJ and owned a nightclub at the time.

“Let me tell you a story that not many people will know: we lived with Jason Statham.

“He and my brother were best friends and they played in a few bands together.

“We’d have a few jams, but I was never on their level!

“He was a good housemate – he didn’t have any bad habits, although I’ve not been in touch with him for a long,long time.”
