Australian left back Elder signed a three year deal when he joined City on the August 2019 transfer deadline day to add competition to Grant McCann’s defensive choices. He came to City injured and made his debut in mid September, making immediate positive impressions with his defending and attacking prowess. By November he was a regular candidate for man of the match as he combined well with flying wingman Kamil Grosicki. His good form continued when the Pole was transferred in January 2020, flourishing as a first team regular despite a poor run of results.
Elder was one of very few players to emerge from City’s crash in form during the latter part of the 2019/20 season and was one of the first names on the teamsheet as City regrouped in League One and launched a behind-closed-doors promotion push in 2020/21.
Born in Sydney, Elder came to Leicester City’s academy at the age of 16 but during six years with the Foxes he never made the first team. He did have considerable Championship experience though, garnered over several loan spells.
Elder won a single Australia under-20 cap in 2013.
