Nicolas Clive Ansell (born 2 February 1994) is an Australian professional football (soccer) player who plays as a centre back for Melbourne Victory in the A-League.

Club career

Ansell spent several years in the Melbourne Victory youth squad before a breakout 2012–13 season, which saw him rewarded with a senior A-League contract. Considered an upcoming future star, he made an immediate impact as a commanding centre back, playing a key role in Melbourne Victory's 2014/15 Premiership-Championship double.

In June 2017, Ansell signed with Portuguese Primeira Liga side Tondela.[3]

In July 2018, Ansell returned to Melbourne to re-join Melbourne Victory.

On 31 January 2019, Ansell departed the Victory a second time, joining K League 2 team Jeonnam Dragons[4][5]

In October 2020, Ansell returned to Melbourne Victory for a third time. [6]
