A talented young striker, he has good pace and excellent close control.

Ellington joined West Bromwich Albion in August 2005 with a four-year contract before being made available for transfer in January 2007.

He joined Watford in August 2007 with a four-year contract.

Ellington joined Ipswich Town in July 2011 with a two-year contract that was cancelled in January 2013.

He joined Crewe Alexandra in March 2013 with a contract to June 2013.
