Player Profile

The midfield maestro arrived at City with a reputation of being a combative, never-say-die attitude, despite coming through the youth ranks at Manchester United. Despite impressing in the lower leagues with Blackpool, Oldham and Doncaster Rovers, Leicester were the first 'big' club to take a punt on him, and he turned out to be well worth the £1.2 million price tag.

The Moston-born midfield man was City's biggest signing in the summer of 2009 and he played a key role in helping the club to the Championship play-offs. Despite numerous manager changes, including Paulo Sousa and Sven-Goran Eriksson, Wellens retained his first-team places, even though others hadn't given the big player changes at the club.

Wellens, a box-to-box midfielder, won the club's Player of the Year award at the end of the 2010-11 season.
