896 Lee Peltier

Biography

Liverpool youngster Peltier joined City on loan in March 2007, playing seven games mostly at right back to see the season out.

Lee Anthony Peltier was born and bred in Liverpool and joined the Reds as a teenager.  He broke into the Liverpool first team in late 2006, debuting against Reading in October 2006 and making four senior appearances in three League Cup ties and a Champions League tie against Galatasaray.

Following his short loan to Hull City he had a longer spell at Yeovil Town during the early part of 2007/08 season, and switched permanently to the Glovers in January 2008.  Two impressive seasons at Huish Park that yielded one goal in 77 senior appearances encouraged Huddersfield Town to sign Peltier in June 2009, beginning a ten year career in the higher reaches of the Championship and the lower reaches of the Premier League.

At Huddersfield Lee scored three goals in 103 appearances then moved on to Leicester City in July 2011. Two goals and 47 appearances for the Foxes led to an August 2012 transfer to Championship rivals Leeds United. In two seasons at Elland Road Lee scored once in 75 appearances before ending the 2013/14 season with seven appearances on loan at Nottingham Forest. Peltier returned to Huddersfield Town in July 2014 but after only 12 appearances in a six month spell he moved on to Cardiff City in January 2015.

At Cardiff Peltier settled and spent five and a half seasons in the Welsh capital, making 163 senior appearances and assisting the Bluebirds to Premier League promotion in 2018. After just one season in the top flight Peltier remained with Cardiff until January 2020 when he switched to Championship rivals West Bromwich Albion. The Baggies were promoted to the Premier League at the end of the 2019/20 season though Peltier was not able to make his debut in those first six months, his seven appearances for Albion all came in the 2020/21 Premier League season as they slipped straight back down to the Championship.

Peltier joined Neil Warnock’s Middlesbrough in July 2021 but when Warnock moved on a few months later Lee’s first team chances were limited. He made 26 senior appearances for the Boro before leaving in July 2022 to join newly promoted Championship side Rotherham United. Within two months he was elevated to caretaker manager of the Millers after Paul Warne left the club, returning to the playing ranks a few days later when new manager Matt taylor was appointed.

Peltier won three England under-18 caps during 2004.
