Nicolas Clive "Nick" Ansell (born 2 February 1994) is an Australian professional football (soccer) player who plays as a centre back for Tondela in the Portuguese Primeira Liga. He had previously played for Melbourne Victory in the A-League.[2][3]

Club career[edit]

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.

Ansell left the Victory on 12 May 2017.[4]

In June 2017, Ansell signed with Portuguese Primeira Liga side Tondela.[5]
