Peltier, who can play as a right back or in midfield, was a regular
member of Liverpool's reserve team squad and was highly rated
by the Melwood staff. In August 2006 he was named in the first-team
squad for the first time, as an unused substitute for a Champions
League qualifier against Maccabi Haifa. Two months later he made
his debut in a League Cup tie against Reading on 25 October 2006.
He made his UEFA Champions League debut for Liverpool against
Galatasaray on 5 December 2006. He played the full ninety minutes

of December 2007. He made 23 appearances for the Somerset side
whom were keen to keep him at Huish Park.
On 30th June 2009, he signed a three year contract with Huddersfield.
Huddersfield boss Lee Clark told BBC Radio Leeds: "Lee
is a player I know well; he is a fantastic athlete and is very
accomplished on the ball. We had him on trial when I was assistant
at Norwich City but we didn't have the finances to secure the
deal." Peltier had made 49 appearances for Yeovil.
On 21st June 2011, it was reported that Leicester City had agreed
to sign right-back Peltier for an undisclosed fee. Peltier has
accepted a three-year deal and is set to seal the move when the
paperwork is completed on Wednesday. The 24-year-old will be boss
Sven-Goran Eriksson's first signing of what is expected to be
a very busy summer. Football director Andrew Neville said: "He's
an exciting addition with his best years ahead of him, which is
vital as we build for the long term. Given the number of admirers
his performances have drawn this season, we are extremely pleased
to have secured his services. Lee was quickly identified by Sven
as a player that could add considerable quality to the squad and
was well known to Sven's assistant, Derek Fazackerley, from his
time with Huddersfield."
On 4th August 2012, Lee became Neil Warnock's tenth signing of
the 2012 pre-season when he joined Leeds on a three year deal.

Forest was confirmed.
Peltier left Leeds on 23rd June 2014 and immediately re-signed
for Huddersfield on a three year deal. This didn't last long as
Peltier joined Cardiff on a deal until the summer of 2018 on January
24th 2015, becoming manager Russell Slade's third signing of the
transfer window. "I'm looking for success and I think
I can find that here," said Peltier. "The move
came about quite quickly; my agent spoke to me early in the week
and said Cardiff were interested and that made me want to talk
to the club.I've worked under the gaffer [Russell Slade] before
[at Yeovil] and he's asked me to come into the group and give
it my all."
Peltier played 30 games in 2017/18 as Cardiff finished second in the Championship and won promotion to the Premier League. He had made 116 appearances in total for the Bluebirds.
