Pierre Ekwah Elimby is a left-sided central defender signed from Nantes in France.

A French Under-16 international who can play in either a back three or back four, he is a quick and athletic individual who also enjoys coming out of defence with the ball and has a good range of pass. He signed his first professional contract in January 2019.

He enjoyed a solid first season in English football, featuring frequently for the youth team and scoring dramatically late on at home to Southampton to rescue a point in January. The Paris-born defender also made his debut in the UEFA Youth League and Premier League 2 during the campaign.
