Starting with his first appearance for City’s Under-18s, Nelson went on to play regularly for the Under-23s in 2020/21, feature in a first-team squad during the Foxes’ UEFA Europa League campaign and then cap the year off with an Academy Player of the Season Award.

It was a remarkable feat considering Nelson had only ever played Under-16s football before the start of the most recent campaign. He was a regular in Premier League 2, with 16 appearances across 2020/21, as well as featuring twice in the Papa John’s Trophy as Leicester reached the third round of the competition.

Nelson also turned out for the Under-18s on occasion, playing four times in Premier League U18, scoring once, as well as making two FA Youth Cup appearances in Leicester's run to the fifth round.

In the summer of 2021, meanwhile, the Scotland youth international also featured often in pre-season, making his King Power Stadium bow in the 3-2 victory over Europa League winners Villarreal.
