Quick-footed and pacey left-sided defender or midfielder.

The Bolton born left-sided player signed a three-year deal at Latics in the summer of 2015, moving on a free transfer from Bolton Wanderers.

His Latics career has been severely interrupted with injuries and will be looking play a great role in 2017-18.

Having been on the fringes of the first-team at his boyhood club, Kellett initially saw the move as an opportunity to establish himself as a first team player and on his debut four days after signing, he made a great impact as Latics came from two goals down to 3-2 at Chesterfield with all three goals scored following his 79th minute introduction, including an assist for Jordi Hiwula’s injury-time winner.

After three further substitute appearances in the league and three Johnstone’s Paint Trophy starts, Kellett was a surprise inclusion in a ‘Number 10’ role at Barnsley in their final game before Christmas, the gamble paying off with a great individual finish to set Latics on their way to a 2-0 victory.



He followed that with the opening strike in the 3-1 win a Fleetwood Town in the next fixture but having played in two more fixtures in early January, suffered the first of a frustrating series of injuries which saw him feature again once more in 2015-16, in the 3-3 draw at Colchester United in March.

Following a knee operation over the summer, he had to wait until mid-December to feature again, but suffered a further setback which kept him out until March, when he played just one game, at home to Aston Villa, before suffering another agonising set-back that ruled him out for the rest of the season.

CAREER SO FAR
Andy played for his home town club Bolton Wanderers from the age of seven-eventually progressing to make four Championship appearances, the first against Leicester City in April 2014.

He enjoyed a loan spell at Plymouth Argyle during the early months of the 2014-15 season and was voted the club's Young Player of the Season, despite making just 12 appearances in which he scored one goal.

In February 2015, he joined Manchester United on loan, where he made 10 appearances for their Under 21 side.
