Nelsen signed for Blackburn Rovers on a free transfer from D.C United in January 2005. He has been a key figure for Blackburn at the back but in recent times injuries have hampered his appearances. Just coming back from injury this season, Nelson will hope to repeat his performances of past seasons.

Although Nelsen is injured at the start of the season, once recovered he turns out to be a great defender. Good stats in all areas that are needed for a centre-back, he should be made a priority in trying to keep hold of.
