Weller played during the 1960s and 1970s, his clubs included Tottenham Hotspur, Millwall, Chelsea and Leicester City. He served his apprenticeship with Spurs before signing for Millwall in June 1967, making his debut against Blackburn Rovers on 19 August 1967. Playing just behind or alongside Derek Possee, he showed his blistering pace, which quickly established him as a fan favourite. Weller signed for Chelsea in 1970 for £100,000. Playing on the right wing, Weller was Chelsea’s top scorer in the 1970–71 season and helped them to a UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup victory in 1971. Despite this he was sold on for the same £100,000 fee that Chelsea paid.

Weller signed for Leicester City in 1971, and played there for eight seasons. He won four caps for England, scoring one goal against Northern Ireland in the 1973–74 British Home Championship.
